Mrs. Jetplane is still cooking

This weekend I tried another new recipe, Spicy Orange Garlic Shrimp from Pioneer Woman. OMG I just found her website last week and I'm totally loving it. Her original recipe can be found here. I admit I did alter it a little bit because I wanted more shrimp, and Mrs. Jetplane doesn't like food that is really spicy so I tried to reduce the spice a little bit, but no worries it was still spicy.

(Frozen) Raw Shrimp I bought the peeled and deveined bag (41-50 per bag)

Good quality Orange Juice 1 1/3 cup (Simply Orange is the only OJ the Jetplanes' drink - NO pulp)

3 Cloves of Garlic - diced

3 Tablespoons Salted Butter

Ground Cayenne Pepper 1/2 tsp

Old Bay Seasoning 1 tsp

1. Defrost the shrimp - put in a strainer and run under cold water until thawed fully.

2. Then place the shrimp on a paper towel
3. Combine OJ, garlic, and spices together - stir

4. Melt 2 Tbsp in a pan on High heat, once melted pop in the shrimp.

5. Cook the shrimp, it shouldn't take too long. Use tongs to flip the shrimp its easier.

6. Remove shrimp and keep the pan on High. Allow pan to smoke slightly then all the OJ mixture to the pan and stir.

7. Add final tbsp of butter and stir, this should create a thicker sauce.

8. Combine the shrimp to the pan with the sauce and stir.

My alterations to the recipe were more shrimp and OJ. So my sauce was not thick as hers but I'm totally cool with that.

This was totally delicious and I loved it. I know Mr. Jetplane will adore it and will want it hot.

Hope you to this and enjoy it.

That looks yummy! I love shrimp and I love PW! She has some amazing recipes. The whiskey glazed carrots and pasta a la betty (or something like that) are both delish.
