In case Seville oranges are not available, substitute a mixture of equal parts fresh squeezed orange juice and lemon juice, 1/4 cup.



Make sure shrimp are cleaned, deveined and completely free of outer shell.

Dilute saffron in 1/4 cup warm water.

Saute shrimp in olive oil for 3 minutes on each side over medium heat. Remove shrimp from pan; set aside.

Add fruit juice to the pan. Stir to dissolve any residue on the bottom of the pan. Slowly whisk in butter, reduce heat to low, and continue to whisk until tiny bubbles begin to surface. Add saffron, stir.


Add shrimp, and return to low heat, cooking until desired doneness. Add salt and pepper as desired.

To serve as an appetizer, place 4 shrimp on each small plate, drizzle with sauce, and garnish with edible rose petals.

Mouth watering bacon wrapped jalapeno shrimp.



Clean and de-vein shrimp. Wear gloves while slicing fresh jalapenos, cut into slivers. Cook bacon in microwave, approx. 3 minutes, still needs to be limp, so you can wrap it around shrimp.


Now take a shrimp and stuff as much jalapeno as you would like into cavity, wrap with half cooked bacon and secure with toothpick.

Make baste. 1/2 cane syrup to 1/2 soy sauce. Place shrimp on grill and baste, wait a couple of minutes and baste again, then turn and baste, baste again.

Shrimp is done when bacon is done, do NOT over cook. Enjoy.

Servings: 4 to 5
Time:15 to 20 min Minutes Preparation Time
