Citrus-Marinated Shrimp


Thanks to my friend Kathleen, we discovered a great shrimp ceviche this past summer that we all really enjoyed. Holland and I decided to recreate that recipe for a cooler-weather dinner, we marinated jumbo shrimp in olive oil, garlic, lemon and lime juice and cilantro. We sauteed this and served over orzo or rice. I served it with a salad, bread (great for sopping), and a side of roasted tomatoes and spinach (which George and I mixed into our shrimp, but the kids don't all like the spinach).

I wanted to take a picture of the dish because it looks so beautiful, but I forgot before dinner and this is what was left the two times I've made it for my family. The kids practically licked the dish clean (I think Holland actually did!).
