This is a busy time of year. A good time of year for quick and easy dinners so you can spend your time on Christmas festivities! This shrimp recipe came from a good friend of mine, Karla Weisenburger. She is also an amazing cook and if you live in northern Utah Valley, I would highly recommend you check out her dinner catering website: Homemade with Love. (Perfect for nights when you don’t want to cook, but still want comfort food!) This shrimp is simple, delicious, and comes together quick. It is kind of spicy, so I would start with only a dash of cayenne or leave it out altogether if you don’t like a little fire in your food. I usually make my orange juice from concentrate, so when I don’t have any made up I just grab a spoonful from the can in the freezer and mix it with water for the recipe. I made the juice super concentrated once, and I liked how the orangey flavor came through a little more. Either way this shrimp is a winner for a quick dinner!

Peel shrimp and defrost. Mince garlic and add to orange juice. Add other spices. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter on medium high in frying pan. Add shrimp and cook until pink. Remove shrimp from pan and add orange juice mixture. Add final tablespoon of butter. Cook mixture down (approximately 5 minutes). Add shrimp back and cook 30-60 seconds (overcooking shrimp makes them chewy). Great served over Jasmine or Calrose rice.
