citrus shrimpServed as a main dish or presented as an appetizer these succulent flavors will pop in your mouth.


• 24 jumbo shrimp (about 1 1/2 pounds)
• 1/2 cup unsalted butter, or extra virgin olive oil, to taste
• 1/3 cup fresh lime juice
• 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
• 1/3 cup orange juice
• 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped (optional)
• 10 garlic cloves, finely chopped
• 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes to taste
• salt and pepper to taste

Peel shrimp, leaving tails intact. Arrange shrimp in a single layer in a large shallow baking dish, or in your grill basket. You may have to do several batches if grilling. Crowding them will cause uneven cooking. Combine the rest of ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Pour over shrimp. Broil or grill for about 8 minutes or until shrimp turns pink. Serve as appetizer or over hot cooked rice or angel hair pasta. Garnish with citrus slices and cilantro.
