Spicy Orange Cinnamon Shrimp


Shrimp is one thing that I love to eat but don't buy very often, so it's a great treat when I do have some.
This quick recipe is delicious - citrusy, but spicy. It gave me a great chance to use my new grater/zester that I mentioned in this post about lemon brownies. I didn't have cayenne pepper so I used chili powder and a sprinkle of red pepper flakes.
I enjoyed the shrimp with a sweet potato and cucumbers, but it would be great with rice, as part of a stir-fry, or any number of other ways. It fits into a clean-eating lifestyle perfectly!
