What a great way to mingle sweet orange juice with seafood! Although I love the flavor of lemon, I honestly think it is overpowering no matter how little you use. Heck, I don't even like any lemon on my lobster, but orange juice? That's another story. Take this recipe for example. Well, just give it a try and email me what you think.

For 2 people
- 2/3 cup honey
- 1/4 cup frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic in oil
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
- Salt and pepper to taste
Sticky Shrimp Directions
Blend honey, orange juice concentrate, soy sauce and lemon juice in a bowl. Add the shrimp, cover and refrigerate one hour.
Remove shrimp from marinade and drain well; set aside. Add the marinade to a small saucepan over medium high heat and boil for about 5 minutes, or until thickened and about half the volume.
While the marinade is boiling, add butter and garlic to a large skillet over medium high heat. When melted and the pan is hot, add the shimp in a single layer. Cook about 2 mintues per side, or until pink throughout and completely cooked. Add the reduced marinade, season to taste with salt and pepper and cook 1 additional minute. Remove from heat to serve as is or over rice.
