Citrus Marinated Grilled Shrimp
If you’re looking for an easy breezy weeknight meal with all of the flavor with little to no clean-up, this is it. Shrimp are a healthy protein low in fat and when marinated in a yummy combo of Uncle Matt’s Orange Juice, herbs, and honey, it’s a mouth-watering winner.
2 pounds fresh unpeeled jumbo shrimp
1 cup Uncle Matt’s Organic Orange Juice, divided
1/4 cup organic honey
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon organic fresh basil, chopped
1 tablespoon organic fresh thyme, chopped
Peel and devein shrimp. Wash and pat dry. Put in heavy-duty Ziplock bag.
Combine 1/2 cup orange juice, honey, and next three ingredients. Pour over shrimp. Seal bag and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.
Take a water pan and position it on the grill, either down in the fire area or on a lower rack. Put remaining orange juice in the pan and drain off marinade into the pan as well.
Thread the shrimp onto skewers that have been soaked for at least 30 minutes in water or place the shrimp on a small-holed grill rack.
Cook on low heat over the pan until shrimp are opaque. Discard liquid in pan.
Yield: 4-6 servings
