Default Citrus Shrimp

Ingredients

  1. 2 oranges, zested and juiced
  2. 3 limes, zested and juiced
  3. 2 tablespoons olive oil
  4. 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  5. 3 cloves garlic
  6. 1 1/2 pounds large shrimp, peeled and deveined


Cooking 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. Fry 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.
