I already told you that I am absolutely in love with shrimp. And, it is about time I made another recipe with them. I just bought a bag of tasty grapefruits and had an orange and lime on my counter, which inspired this amazing recipe. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
1/4 Cup of White Wine
1 TBSP Chiffonaded Mint
2 Cloves of Garlic, minced
1 Pound medium shrimp, (30-40 per pound), peeled and deveined
Salt to taste
Combine juice of lime, orange and 1/2 of grapefruit in bowl
Add 1 TSP zest of lime and orange
Add shrimp and toss to coat
Cover and refrigerate for 20 minutes, tossing occasionally
Heat a large skillet and add enough olive oil to coat bottom
Drain shrimp and reserve marinade
Add shrimp to skillet
Cook shrimp about 30 seconds per side (or until barely pink)
Transfer cooked shrimp to plate and add reserved marinade to skillet
Simmer for 5 minutes
Add shrimp back to skillet and salt to taste
I added julianned veggies (zucchini, carrots, and squash) to the shrimp and marinade.
Serve and enjoy! I think that this triple citrus marinade would also be a great to use with chicken, tilapia, swordfish, flounder, sea bass, and scallops! Pretty much a white flaky fish and/or chicken. Give one of these a try and let me know in the comments below or at email@example.com how it turns out!
Happy weekend and stay hungry…
