O Canada

Happy Canada Day Everyone!



In honor of Canada Day I thought I’d share a yummy Shrimp recipe that I made last night for dinner.

Spicy Orange Shrimp that I got off Closet Cooking. You can check out the original recipe here.

This recipe took a lot of pre (it took me about 45 mins to get everything ready) but it was definitely worth it in the end.

Spicy Orange Shrimp

  • EVOO
  • 1 bag of shrimp
  • 1 tbsp grated garlic
  • 1 tbsp grated ginger
  • 1 orange (juice and zest)
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp chilli sauce (I used a sweet chilli sauce)
  • handful of chopped cilantro
  • Noodles or Rice (we used rice noodles)

Peel Shrimp (or buy the pre-peeled stuff)
