This is a creation of Suu-Brother.......Unfortunately in order for me to try it I would need Benedryl, Aveeno Oatmeal bath, and a lot of water, so um...someone try and tell me how it is. Cause I love shrimp and this breaks my heart.

ORANGE FENNEL SCRIMPS

1lb 16-20 uncooked shrimp
1 whole Florida orange
1/4 cup honey
1 cup oj
1/4 oz fennel leaves

first reduce the oj about 3/4 ,zest your and your zest to the reduction.
Then you need to peel and slice that same orange and puree' it. Add in your fennel leaves and honey.
Then slow mix the reduction in the puree'. Peel shrimp and sauté's it for 45 seconds each side on high heat.
Place on a plate pure your sauce onto shrimp and enjoy

interesting!

just one question if you say, reduce the oj about 3/4, does that mean there should be 3/4th left of it or 3/4th of it should be evaporated?

unfortunately, shrimp are a bit expensive here, especially the larger ones. but, maybe, if i ask the fish guy at the market reaaaaaly nicely that it's an important experiment for a shrimpically-challenged woman from america, he'll make me a good deal? :) :)

I gotta say, this sounds like too much orange flavor in one dish (juice, zest, AND a whole pureed orange!), but I like it conceptually. I'd probably use the fennel bulb instead of the leaves because the anise flavor of the bulb is alot milder, but that's strictly a matter of personal taste.

Some yahoo yelled at me, saying 'GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH', and I thought, "I'm feeling generous today.  Why not BOTH?"

Sounds tasty, does he recomend serving with rice, or jsut by itself?

Anyone ever think about how Richter inhabits the same reality as you and just scream and scream and scream, but in a good way?   :lulz:

I'm not sure, he sent it to me through email and said, 'look what I just came up with today'. My guess it's a touristy treat for the dog track restaurant since he opted out of going to NOLA. He made me for my dad though, and the review was that it was good.

But I'm sure over white rice it would be tasty.

I'm tempted to get the necessary benedryl and try it for myself though. My reaction to shrimp is typically mild and just involves a scratchy throat if that.  If it was crab or lobster then I'd probably wanna pick up prednisone.

You could always fake it and use cubed lean chicken. 

Your brother will likely storm north to kill me for saying that.

I don't think he would, as a chef it's his JOB to adjust recipes for my fucking allergies, damnit. When I was last down there I missed the chance for him to cook for me because he was busy, and I was only there for 3 nights, so I partook in all the fast food that RI/MA doesn't have and regretted it after. (Sketch doesn't understand why I flipped out over there being a Chick-Fil-A in Beverly. That was like...heaven to me.)

aaanyway, my question about reducing? do you end up with 3/4th or 1/4th of the orange juice?

If you're reducing the juice 3/4, I assume that means you'll have 1/4 left. That sounds more concentrated for a sauce.

As far as I can tell from the tortured syntax, the recipie is essentially a sauce poured over sautee'd shrimp.


If that's the case, you can pour it over anything your little heart desires, from cubed, battered and fried haddock to lobster.

Hell, you could drizzle it over grilled trout, if you wanted.  The flavor in this dish isn't in the shrimp, it's in the sauce.  Knock yourself out.

Also, try using a blood orange instead of a regular orange.


Also also Trip0, if you start with 1 cup of OJ, I think you're supposed to reduce until you get 1/4 cup of OJ.
