Citrus Shrimp

Ingredients

  • 2 oranges, zested and juiced
  • 3 limes, zested and juiced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 1/2 pounds large shrimp, peeled and de-veined

Directions

  1. In a blender or food processor, combine the orange juice and zest, lime juice and zest, olive oil, garlic and salt. Be careful with the salt – the shrimp really suck it up! Cover and puree until smooth.
  2. Place shrimp in a bowl and pour the citrus marinade over them. Let them marinate for 20 minutes at room temperature.
  3. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Saute the shrimp about 3 minutes per side, in batches if necessary, until opaque. Spoon a little of the marinade in with them for extra flavor while they cook if you like. Good on the grill too, and they’re great served over a bed of greens on a summer day
