Spicy Asian Shrimp


1/2 lb. medium-sized shrimp, peeled and deveined

2 T. + 1 T. fresh lemon juice

Sea salt and pepper to taste

3 T. low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth

2 medium garlic cloves

1/8 tsp. red pepper flakes

1/4 C. orange juice

1 T. minced fresh ginger

1 T. extra virgin olive oil


Chop garlic and let sit for 5 minutes to enhance its health-promoting properties.  Peel and devein shrimp.  Rub shrimp with 2 T. lemon juice, salt and pepper.  Heat 3 T. broth over medium-low heat in a stainless-steel skillet.  When broth begins to steam, add shrimp, red pepper flakes, orange juice, and ginger and sauté. Stir frequently. After 2 minutes, turn the shrimp over and add garlic. Sauté until shrimp are pink and opaque throughout (approximately 3 minutes). Shrimp cook quickly, so watch your cooking time. They become tough if overcooked.  Dress with the extra virgin olive oil and the remaining 1 T. lemon juice.
