{Curried Peanut Shrimp}

I remember making this recipe in high school.  I can picture the kitchen in the house I grew up in and throwing peanut butter and orange juice into the blender.  I'm pretty sure I made this when my grandpa was over and I remember him being a bit amazed by how well all the ingredients came together.

This is another great recipe to make when you don't have much time.  The shrimp can marinade 30 minutes or a couple hours and easily broils up in minutes.

{Ingredients You'll Need}

  • 1/3 cup orange or apricot marmalade
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon chile sauce with garlic
  • 1 lb. peeled and deveined shrimp
1.  In a blender combine all ingredients except for the shrimp.  Reserve 1/4 cup of the marinade and with the rest add it to a ziplock bag and throw in your shrimp.  Marinate for at least 30 minutes.

2.  Prepare grill or broiler and then either throw the shrimp on kebabs or onto a broiler rack coated with cooking spray.  Cook in a broiler for about 3 minutes per side basting with the reserve marinade.

Enjoy these when they're done with some veg and rice perhaps to soak up the marinade.
