Citrus Shrimp

Citrus Shrimp

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 deveined

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.

Place shrimp in a bowl, and pour the citrus marinade over them. Let them marinate for 20 minutes at room temperature.

Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the shrimp about 3 minutes per side, in batches if necessary, until opaque.

Or you can grill in a basket or skewered

Spoon a little of the marinade in with them for extra flavor while they cook if you like.
