This recipe is from Le Gordon Bleu Quick and Easy book. I have made it several times and its very tasty. It is good to serve over rice.

Yeeee-ummmy! I only had green pepper, red would be prettier on the plate! I squeezed my oranges to make 4 T. juice and opted not to use the orange sections in the finished dish. I used 1/2 t. crushed red pepper flakes and that provided a nice little burst of heat. As we'd just eaten rice the night before, I served the shrimp over a choice of fresh sauteed spinach or egg noodles, along with crunchy bread. We thought this shrimp was divine! Will make again! Thanks!
