Sweet Orange Shrimp
This is a Publix recipe meaning it's an easy meal for a weeknight dinner. And what an interesting combination of flavors: orange, horseradish, and some honey for sweetness. Now for my tastes, I think I will add a bit more orange juice and reduce the horseradish by half....for me, the horseradish overwhelmed the shrimp just a bit. But I do love horseradish, but more of a whisper than a full-out shout.
SWEET ORANGE SHRIMP (4 servings)
Juice of 1-2 medium oranges (1/2 cup)
1/4 cup light mayo
2 Tbsp prepared horseradish
1 Tbsp honey
1 tsp seasoned salt
1 Tbsp canola oil
1 pound large peeled, deveined shrimp (thawed)
1 Tbsp quick-mixing flour (like Wondra.....however, I used regular AP flour)
Whisk in orange juice, mayo, horseradish, honey, and seasoned salt until blended; set aside.
Preheat large saute pan on medium-high for 2-3 minutes. Place oil in pan, then add shrimp; sprinkle with flour. Cook and stir 2-3 minutes or until shrimp just being to turn pink.
Stir in orange juice mixture; reduce heat to medium. Simmer and stir 3-4 minutes or until shrimp are opaque and sauce thickens. Serve.
