  • 8 oz. pasta your choice made according to directions -- al dente!
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ cup fresh orange juice about 1 orange
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice about 1 lemon
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 ½ teaspoons finely chopped red onion or shallot
  • 1 ½ teaspoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 1 lb. wild-caught shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 1 ½ teaspoon Tuscan style seasoning ours has salt in it - if yours doesn't you'll have to add some
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 medium orange cut into slices
  • 1 medium lemon cut into slices
  • Parsley leaves for garnish
  • Additional orange slices for garnish optional


  • Make the pasta according to directions. Save ½ cup of the pasta water when pasta is done.
  • Clean the shrimp and season. Cover with plastic wrap and place in fridge until ready to add to the other ingredients.
  • In a large heavy skillet, whisk together the olive oil, orange juice, lemon juice, garlic onion, parsley, pepper flakes, sliced orange, and sliced lemon. Over medium heat bring the mixture to a simmer and cook for about 6 minutes. the liquid will reduce by about half. Add the shrimp and season with freshly ground pepper and salt if your Tuscan seasoning didn't have salt in it. Stir and cook until they turn pink -- just a few minutes.
  • **If you need more liquid in the sauce add a little of the reserved pasta water.
  • Arrange on the pasta on a platter and pour the shrimp and sauce over it. Sprinkle some fresh parsley leaves over the shrimp and garnish with orange slices.
