There are so many ways to eat shrimp. In salads, stir-fries, tacos, and even as a snack!
I thought I would share a slightly exotic recipe ... a shrimp curry with roasted oranges.
Serve it with a side salad and some rice or quinoa for a complete meal.
It’s important to remove the white “pith” from the oranges because it can have a bitter flavour.
(makes 4 servings)
Preheat your oven to 400ºF/200ºC. Line a rimmed baking sheet (with sides) with parchment paper.
Using a sharp knife, slice the oranges and then cut the slices into quarters. Spread the oranges on your baking sheet and sprinkle with sea salt. Roast for about 10 minutes – they should be slightly dry.
While the oranges are in the oven, toss the shrimp with the oil, curry powder, oregano, hot sauce, and pepper in a medium bowl.
Remove the oranges from the oven and add the shrimp to the pan. Return to the oven and bake for another 5-6 minutes until the shrimp are cooked through – they should be pink and slightly curled.
Remove from the oven and serve over the rice or quinoa. SO DELICIOUS!
