Sweet and spicy? On shrimp? How can that be? Trust us, this one takes humdrum shrimp and turns them on their ear! We serve this over rice with a green vegetable; but you can just as easily add these to a stir fry. Want to grill these – stand back – people will be crowding the BBQ at your next cookout.

Ingredients
1¼ pound shrimp, peeled
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon black pepper
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
½ teaspoon dark brown sugar
¼ teaspoon dry mustard
freshly squeezed orange juice

Method:
Combine salt, black pepper, cayenne, mustard, cinnamon, and brown sugar; mix well.
Coat the shrimp with the spice mixture. Cover bowl & refrigerate at least 15 minutes and up to 24 hours.

Preheat fry pan with a little olive oil and fry shrimp until pink & opaque.
If grilling, cook shrimp over hot coals until opaque, about 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Watch carefully you don’t want to overcook!
Drizzle juice over shrimp and serve with rice & green veg.
