Shrimp is the fruit of the sea...

...You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey's uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep-fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich...

How do you like to prepare shrimp?

I like to grill it and then brush on a glaze, consisting of reduced orange juice (2 cups very slowly simmered to 1/3 cup) with 2 tablespoons of cold, unsalted butter and a dash of soy sauce mixed in just before glazing. Serve it with some Caribbean-inspired jasmine rice pilaf (cilantro, lime zest, orange bell pepper, garlic, jalapeno, onion, salt, oil) and you have quite the tropical dish.
