Ingredients

Units Scale

Fish Marinade

  • 4 ounces orange juice
  • 2 Tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic
  • 1 Tablespoon tamari sauce (gluten free soy sauce)
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder or paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt and black pepper
  • Pinch of crushed red pepper flakes (optional)

For the pan 

  • 1 lb medium shrimp
  • 1 lb snap peas, snow peas, zucchini, or green beans
  • 1 cup sliced cherry tomatoes, optional
  • Chopped cilantro, to garnish
  • Fresh lemon slices, to garnish
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the marinade ingredients. Set aside.
  2. Clean shrimp, devein, and peel, leaving tails on. Place shrimp in a glass pan or ziplock bag. Pour marinade over shrimp and place in fridge to marinate for 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. Set oven to broiler. While broiler is heating, prep any additional veggies you want to add to the pan. Note that veggies with less starch/skin (peas, green beans, tomato, etc.) work best to cook evenly with shrimp!
  4. After shrimp has marinated, place shrimp on large sheet pan. Brush additional marinade on top. Place green beans or snap peas and cherry tomatoes around the shrimp. Broil for 5-7 minutes (total). Half way through cooking time, turn shrimp over. Flesh will be opaque with whitish color when fully cooked. Shrimp will continue to cook once you remove it from oven.
  5. Remove from oven and garnish with fresh herbs and lemon.

Notes

  1. Note that veggies with less starch/skin (peas, green beans, tomato, etc.) work best to cook evenly with shrimp.
  2. Freezer tip! Quickly chill cooked shrimp (flat) before freezing. Then package in freezer containers or bags, for up to 3 months.
  3. Broiling large to jumbo shrimp will need a longer broil, closer to 8-10 minutes. Check color of skin for doneness.
