We adapted today's recipe from one by FoodBuzz-featured publisher Kevin Lynch of Toronto, Canada, author of the Closet Cooking blog.

As Kevin says, “Basically you want to balance the flavor of the orange with a bit of saltiness from the soy sauce, some tang from the vinegar, a touch of sweetness from the honey and some spicy chili heat.”
“The net result is a dish of succulent shrimp covered in a sauce with the aroma and flavor of oranges that just dances on your tongue.”
“I made these shrimp as more of an appetizer but you could easily turn this into a meal by adding a few vegetables and maybe some cashews and serving it on rice or noodles.”
