Grilled spicy orange shrimp

Today it was my first time using the outdoor grill to make these magnificent grilled spicy orange shrimp. It was actually my first time ever using the outdoor grill, as my husband is the one normally in charge of make grill recipes.

I was a bit skeptical using the outside grill for the first time, however, the result was just perfection. The sauce is what actually made the shrimp exceptional. The recipe itself was also simple, which is always a win win situation for me. Neither making the sauce or cooking the shrimp won’t take long at all.

To make the sauce I used not from concentrate Florida’s Natural® Brand Orange Juice. It’s the perfect juice to use because it’s made entirely from Florida oranges grown by actual farmers. Just how juice is supposed to be!

The orange flavor is very intense. You will taste the orange come through in the sauce so if you like orange flavor and would like good results with your sauce make sure you use this type of juice and not a concentrated form.

This is something that I strive to do every time I cook and bake. I always try to use the best possible ingredients to make sure that my recipes come through with flavor.

If you have leftover sauce you can also store this sauce in your refrigerator and used it for chicken, fish, beef….whatever type of protein you may like. I have marinated chicken over night with this sauce and saute it for lunch the next day and worked really good. If you like the sauce it is very versatile so make sure you don’t discard the leftover.

For this recipe I used shrimp but if you are not too fond of shrimp you can use chicken too. Either one is fine.

I hope you get to try this grilled spicy orange shrimp. It would be the perfect grilling recipe for July 4th.
