Light and delicious Spicy Orange Shrimp takes less than 15 minutes to prepare and will become a favorite in your house! Serve over rice for a quick, healthy meal!
I’m going through this weird shrimp thing right now.
A couple weeks ago, I couldn’t stop thinking about coconut shrimp. I called every restaurant in the area to see if they had coconut shrimp.
No one had it. So I’ve officially gone through 5 boxes of frozen coconut shrimp since then.
I’m having shrimp for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
What is happening.
Fried coconut shrimp is not exactly the healthiest choice so I’m trying to switch over to something a little lighter, a little healthier.
And now I’m obsessed with this shrimp.
It’s just quickly stir-fried shrimp with a yummy sauce made with fresh orange juice, soy sauce, honey, garlic, ginger… all the good stuff! I serve it over boil-in-the-bag jasmine rice for a super quick (like, less than 15 minutes!) meal!
