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.
- Freshly squeezed orange juice
- Soy sauce
- Rice wine vinegar
- Chile paste
- Coconut oil
- Green onions
- Cooked rice – for serving
How To Make Spicy Orange Shrimp
- In a mixing bowl, sprinkle shrimp with cornstarch and toss to coat
- In a separate small bowl, whisk together fresh orange juice, soy sauce, honey, rice wine vinegar, and chile paste
- Heat coconut oil over medium-high in a large skillet
- Add ginger and garlic and cook until fragrant
- Add shrimp and stir-fry for about 3 minutes
- Add sauce and sliced green onions and cook until sauce thickens and shrimp is cooked through, about 2 – 3 more minutes
- Serve over cooked rice
How Long Is Orange Shrimp Good For?
This spicy orange shrimp will stay good for up to 3 – 4 days when stored tightly covered in the refrigerator.
What To Serve with Spicy Orange Shrimp?
I always serve this shrimp over cooked rice or cauliflower rice, depending on my mood. You could even do fried rice if you’re looking for a takeout feel. With some stir-fried snap peas or steamed broccoli on the side.
You could also put them in lettuce wraps with or without cooked rice.
