  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice (2 oranges)
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons prepared horseradish, or to taste
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 pounds large shrimp, peeled and deveined (about 50)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  1. In a bowl, mix orange juice, orange zest, sour cream, vinegar, and horseradish; stir to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover orange-horseradish sauce, and chill at last 1 hour, or overnight.

  2. Heat grill or grill pan to medium-hot. Drizzle shrimp with olive oil, and toss to coat. Arrange shrimp on grill, working in batches if necessary. Grill until pink and developing golden-brown marks, about 3 minutes per side. Remove from heat. Serve shrimp with orange-horseradish sauce.
