Description

Another recipe from Ryan that’s crazy-go-nuts good. Appetizer or entree, these mouthwatering provisions will melt in your mouth.

Ingredients

  • 24 pieces (26-30 Per Pound) Deveined Shrimp
  • 2 cloves (to 4 Cloves) Garlic
  • ¾ cups Orange Juice
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
  • 3 Tablespoons Salted Butter, Divided

Preparation

Thaw and peel the shrimp. Thaw them by running them under cold water for a few minutes. Dry the peeled shrimp by draining them on a paper towel or two.

Thinly slice your garlic cloves. Add the garlic to ¾ cup of orange juice. Use a nice high quality orange juice. Measure out and add all of the spices to the orange juice as well.

In a large skillet over high heat melt 2 tablespoons butter. Once butter has melted add your shrimp. Cook them for about 30-60 seconds and begin flipping them over starting with the ones you placed in the pan first so they don’t get overdone. Cook for another 30-60 seconds. Remove the cooked shrimp from the pan, leaving the heat on high.

Once the butter and drippings begin to smoke ever so slightly add the spicy orange garlic mixture to the pan and give it a good stir. Add the last tablespoon of butter to the sauce and after a few minutes of cooking and occasional stirring your sauce should be slightly thicker.

Return the shrimp to the pan and give them a nice toss to coat them in the sauce. Allow an intermingling of souls to take place for just a few seconds and then it’s time for the fireworks.

I hadn’t used the Old Bay Seasoning before and was bothered a bit by its flavor. My husband and son liked it so I might try it again using 1/2 the Old Bay. Otherwise nice orange flavor and heat.

yummy and incredibly easy recipe. I expect I will make this again. I like SPICY and found this to only be mild, but based on reviews I guess thresholds are quite variable.

Very good basic recipe. A little on the hotter side, even my boyfriend who likes spicy said so. If I were to make it again, I would reduce the cayenne pepper and add in some veggies, like broccoli or peapods. All in all, can’t go wrong with Pastor Ryan & Ree. Thanks again!

This was good. I decided to put an Asian cuisine spin on it and serve with fried rice. I ommitted the Old Bay seasoning and used Cajun spice instead. Oh and I didn’t have any shrimp so I used chicken and just lightly coated with flour. It was very good!

Loved it.

We put it on a salad, but next time I might add it to angel hair pasta. Or, put it on crusty french bread with chopped lettuce, tomatoes and drizzle on the sauce for a po-boy style sandwich.

Yum.

But, we put Old Bay on everything – seafood, corn, eggs… so, if you are not into spicy food, or if you don’t like Old Bay, then this is not the recipe for you.
