I love cooking shrimp on weeknights because it only takes about 5 minutes. This is a quick & delicious meal that will satisfy you & impress. I was grabbing a salad for lunch at Whole Foods and saw large, beautiful shrimp on sale. I didn’t even plan to make dinner that evening, but I couldn’t pass by these yummy shrimp. I grabbed a box of 5 minute couscous to make along with the shrimp.
When I got home, I raided the fridge and cupboard to see what was on hand. I had a whole bag of navel oranges that were about to go bad so I was decided to make an orange sauce to coat the shrimp.
I started preparation right away and dinner was ready about 10 minutes later. First, I squeezed the oranges into a measuring cup & zested the fruit.
The shrimp was added to a saute pan and turned pink & yummy in less than 5 minutes.
I added the orange juice mixture to the same pan (quick clean up) and boiled it. Once the butter was added, the sauce took on a beautiful sheen & the aroma was to die for.
The shrimp was tossed back into the sauce and voila. Dinner was complete.
I strongly suggest this recipe! Bryan and I really enjoyed it. The heartiness of the couscous sticks to your ribs, leaving you feeling satisfied. The sauce has a creaminess to it without any cream which sticks nicely to the shrimp. I personally love the pairing or citrus and garlic. I can’t wait to make this again!
