Grapefruit Shrimp

Grapefruit isn't just for breakfast.  Here is some delicious citrus shrimp goodness.  If you like, you can peel the shrimp first though they turn out less dry with peels left on if you're sauteing/grilling. 

Grapefruit Shrimp
Makes 6 servings

2 lbs. shrimp, peel on or off
2 tbsp olive oil
1 or 2 grapefruits, zested and maybe juiced
pepper to taste

If you're planning on grilling, skewer the shrimp.

Mix everything together and fridge it for at least an hour, or freeze in a ziptop bag (the pokey parts of shrimp peels/skewers tend to cause problems for the vacusealer, at least for mine).  If you're going to freeze, don't add any grapefruit juice, but if you're cooking same-day or next-day, the juice is good too.

To cook, thaw thoroughly.  Saute or grill shrimp 2-3 minutes per side on medium-high heat until cooked through. Pin It
