      So I have been itching to make this recipe since I saw it in Eating Well Magazine. I made it as written (although I did add the zest of one orange to the sauce). That being said, next time I make it I will not bread the shrimp. . .wasn't necessary in my opinion and just added calories. DH and I agreed it was good, but not great. Served it atop just a little white rice with a side of broccoli and a small Korean cucumber salad.

      This is my husband's favorite way for me to cook shrimp and he requests it often. The only thing I do different is to double the sauce. We like having extra to put over white rice.
