Curry-Roasted Shrimp with Oranges

Shrimp, oranges and curry make a great flavor trio. Serve over rice as a main course or as is for an appetizer.

Serves 4

Prep Time 25 min

Total Time 25 min.

Ingredients

  • 2 large seedless oranges
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • 1 1/2 pounds shrimp, (30-40 per pound), peeled and deveined
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder, preferably Madras (see Note)
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet (with sides) with parchment paper. Finely grate the zest of 1 orange; set aside. Using a sharp knife, peel both oranges, removing all the bitter white pith. Thinly slice the oranges crosswise, then cut the slices into quarters. Spread the orange slices on the prepared baking sheet and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Roast until the oranges are slightly dry, about 12 minutes.

Step 2

Meanwhile, toss shrimp with oil, curry powder, pepper, the orange zest and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Transfer the shrimp to the baking sheet with the oranges and roast until pink and curled, about 6 minutes. Divide the oranges and the shrimp among 4 plates and serve.
