Shrimp with Orange and Marsala Wine

Saute shrimp with Marsala Wine

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 pound large shrimp, peeled with tails on
Salt and ground black pepper
Pinch red pepper flakes
Zest and juice 1 orange
1/3 cup Marsala wine

Directions: Add the oil to a large skillet over medium-high heat and sauté the shrimp until they turn pink.  Season with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Add the Marsala wine, orange zest and juice, and reduced by half, about 1-2 minutes.  Serve with rice, potatoes or polenta.


The sweetest of the Marsala wine with the orange zest, gives a special flavor to this shrimp dish. You can serve this dish as an entrée or appetizer. Be sure the shrimp is dry before you sauté. Sautéed wet shrimp dilutes the sauce and does not allow the shrimp to caramelized properly for best taste.
