Serve this simple yet flavorful dish, from author Mark Bittman, with couscous or rice.




  • Combine oil and garlic in a skillet no larger than 10 inches across. Turn the heat to medium, and cook until the garlic begins to sizzle, then turn the heat to medium-low. When garlic is blond, stir in chiles, orange zest, and orange juice. Add shrimp, and raise the heat to high.

  • Cook, stirring occasionally and sprinkling with salt, until the shrimp are all pink, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat, and add most of the cilantro and the lemon juice. Taste, and adjust seasoning. Serve garnished with the remaining cilantro.
