Ingredients

2 cups
100% Pure & Natural Orange Juice No Pulp
500 mL
2 tsp
hot pepper flakes
10 mL
2 cloves
garlic, halved
1/2 tsp
each salt and pepper
2 mL
1 bag
Uncooked Colossal Freshwater Shrimp (8/10)
454 g
1
ripe avocado, peeled and pit removed, diced
3 tbsp
finely chopped red onion
45 mL
2 tbsp

Method

Step 1
Place orange juice, hot pepper flakes, garlic, salt and pepper in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to a very gentle simmer. Meanwhile, peel shrimp, leaving tails attached. Immerse shrimp in orange juice mixture and poach for 3 to 4 min. or until shrimp are just opaque. Do not overcook.
Step 2
Use a slotted spoon to remove shrimp, and drain on a paper-towel-lined plate. Refrigerate. Reserve 3 tbsp (45 mL) of poaching liquid, removing garlic pieces, and cool.
Step 3
Combine avocado with cooled poaching liquid, red onion and cilantro; season with additional salt and pepper to taste. Divide avocado mixture and shrimp among four plates or glasses and serve.
