Directions

  1. Stir shrimp, orange juice, garlic, and ginger together in bowl; season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate 15 minutes.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil and sesame oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Remove shrimp from the marinade; cook and stir in the hot oil until opaque, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer shrimp to a plate.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil with the oil remaining in the wok. Cook and stir bell pepper, squash, broccoli, onion, carrot, orange zest, and cayenne pepper in the hot oil until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Return shrimp to the skillet, stir into the vegetable mixture, and continue cooking 1 minute more.
  4. Serve over cooked rice.

Made this for dinner last night & the whole family loved it. My only change was at the end, mixed 1/4 c. water with 2tsp. cornstarch & added to the mixture. Gave it a nice glaze. Will make this again!!

I followed the recipe exactly. With the ginger/garlic/orange flavor combination, it seemed like this should have rocked. I was really disappointed.

Seldom serve shrimp so I was a bit hesitant. This recipe was very easy and didn't require any special ingredients. Not having all the recipe's vegetables, just tossed in anything that was handy and seemed practical. My group loved this meal. Needlessly, I didn't divulge any of these remarks...

I used chicken instead of shrimp (my family doesn't like seafood). The only other changes I made were to use 1/2 zucchini rather than the yellow squash (because my store didn't have it) and to add 2 tsp of brown sugar to cut the spiciness of the cayenne (we like spicy stuff - but there was too much cayenne for us). My kids didn't care for it (they doused it in teriyaki sauce), but my husband loved it. I would make it again for just the adults, but would cut the cayenne in half and perhaps add a bit more orange zest.

This was not all that bad after I tweaked it a bit. I added two tablespoons smuckers sugar free apricot preserve, 1 tablespoon honey, 1 tablespoon lite soy sauce to the marinade. I then fried the shrimp but saved the marinad and added 1 tablespoon corn starch to it and then added that to the fried shrimp and sautee. Presto!

Thanks to MATTYSMOMMY for the brown sugar suggestion. I added 4 or 5 Tbl and still was wishing I had used less cayenne and more orange zest, but it was good anyway, the shrimp was very tasty, and my husband liked it. Will probably try it again with a few changes.
