A very interesting and delicious way to serve shrimp which we enjoyed with tossed salad. The only change I made was using part Splenda for the sugar. Very good and simple to make! Thanks for sharing!

  1. Thaw shrimp (if using frozen); set aside.
  2. With a vegetable peeler, remove 2 or 3 strips of peel from one of the clementines (be careful not to get any of the bitter white pith) and place in a small sauce pan with water, sugar, and crushed peppercorns; boil gently, uncovered, until reduced to about 1/3 cup, 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Meanwhile, peel and devein shrimp, leaving tails intact, and set aside.
  4. Peel, removing all the peel and pith, the clementines and grapefruit.
  5. Cut grapefruit in 1/2 inch slices; remove seeds; break clementines into segments.
  6. In a bowl, combine salt, ground pepper, cumin and shrimp; toss to coat shrimp.
  7. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat; add shrimp and cook until opaque, about 3 to 4 minutes.
  8. Add clementines and grapefruit, cover, and cook 1 minute, turning fruit once.
  9. Transfer to a serving bowl, pour citrus sauce over top, and toss gently.
