Spicy Orange Garlic Shrimp

The minute Natalie saw the orange juice out while I was making the shrimp and she realized it was out to be part of the shrimp dish--well, let's just say, she was CONCERNED!! I had her peeling the tails off the shrimp as I got everything else ready and her concern grew as the sauce began to boil...

All concerns aside, she loved the shrimp. It's a definite different flavor with the added sweetness of the orange juice. I added a bit more salt because at first it was too sweet for me. I was needing the savory out of this meal. I used a New Orleans rub/seasoning instead of the Old Bay as it calls for, so maybe my seasoning wasn't quite as salty.

Overall, Spicy Orange Garlic Shrimp was a nice change for eating shrimp. And the critics gobbled it down---not even one tiny little shrimp left!
