Orange-Balsamic Shrimp Pasta – sautéed shrimp are coated in a spicy and tangy citrus sauce that is out of this world!
I’ve made this three times now, and we just keep falling deeper and deeper in love.
It’s another winner from Barefeet in the Kitchen’s new Weeknight Dinner Cookbook. This recipe is titled Fiery Orange Shrimp Pasta in the book, which was quite appropriate considering how much red pepper flakes, cayenne, and black pepper it originally called for. But Lordy, it was too spicy for the kids..and me! I cut back on the seasoning to suit us and there was plenty of sauce to accommodate for more pasta, so I upped that.
All in all, this dish is FABULOUS. I can’t even explain how wonderful the sauce is. It’s got a kick, but is balanced perfectly by the tangy balsamic and citrusy orange juice. It would be great over rice, as well!…
