Orange Shrimp Mojo
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Cook: 45 min.
I was also last minute lazy and did not toast and grind spices, but this recipe is tangy with a tiny kick. We skipped the salsa and served this over rice with savory stir-fried snow peas. It made an excellent light meal, and my husband and I both enjoyed it.
This was excellent, as DH mentioned before, during, and after eating it. I must admit to being last-minute lazy and using 1/2 teaspoon each of fresh-ground rainbow pepper and ground cumin in place of the whole-toasted-and-smashed variety. I used chunks of skinless/boneless chicken thighs instead of shrimp because I’m fixing shellfish tomorrow night. I’m sure this Mojo will be delicious with shrimp, too.Next time I will keep a better eye on my boiling OJ mixture. It cooked down more quickly than I expected, and I understood why the recipe photos showed a brown sauce instead of the pale orange liquid I started with. I needed to add more liquid to thin it back out, but it was just fine. And the salsa was the perfect complement. Keeper!
