smoky orange shrimp to share

smoky orange shrimp I love to have friends and family over for dinner. Love it. Usually there is at least some semblance of planning. But sometimes things have to be done on the fly, and improvised a bit. Like when I return home from grocery shopping, and realize that there really is no appetizer, and while being at the beck and call of a new baby, the tummies of others can get put on the back burner. Hence the invention of a shrimp dish that is made to be shared, just so no one is starving by the time the rest of the meal finally arrives. Just plate up the shrimp and hand out the forks. Don't wander too far from the plate because these won't last long. Smoky Orange Shrimp to Share 1 pound peeled and deveined raw shrimp 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil 3 cloves minced garlic 1/2 tsp minced ginger 1/2 tsp smoked paprika 2 tbsp of frozen orange juice concentrate 1 tsp freshly chopped chives 1. In a preheated nonstick skillet, add the olive oil garlic and ginger. Heat on medium-high heat, just until fragrant, and the garlic is lightly brown. 2. Add the shrimp and paprika to the pan. Lower the heat to medium-low, and cook the shrimp for another 30 seconds, stirring nearly continuously to ensure the shrimp are evenly cooked. 3. Add the orange juice concentrate and continue to stir until the shrimp are cooked. 4. Quickly remove the shrimp to the serving plate. Leaving behind some of the sauce. 5. Reduce the sauce until there is just one tablespoon of liquid. Then spoon the sauce over the shrimp, and sprinkle with the chives. Serve immediately, and enjoy!
