My family loves seafood. So I’m always looking for different flavor combinations to satisfy the seafood craving and to get away from the same ol’ same ol’. The fresh taste of the orange and the distinct taste of the balsamic make this a great combination of flavors.
1 pound. large shrimp, cleaned
2 tablespoons of olive oil
Salt & Pepper to taste
Pinch Cayenne pepper
1 ½ cup of balsamic vinegar
2 clove garlic, finely minced
1 teaspoon shallot, finely minced
1 teaspoon orange zest

For the Balsamic glaze: In a small saucepan, add the vinegar, garlic, shallot, and orange zest. Stir until combine. Salt & pepper to taste. Cook until the mixture has reduced by half. The mixture should be thick and syrup like. Set aside.
For the Shrimp: Preheat grill pan. In a medium bowl, mix shrimp with olive oil salt & pepper and cayenne. Grill shrimp for 2 to 3 minutes or until they are pink and firm. Brush the grilled shrimp on both sides with the balsamic glaze (the glaze is strong; a little goes a long way).
Serve with rice
