Cilantro Lime Shrimp


1. In a measuring cup, whisk together lime juice, marmalade, garlic, cilantro, 3 tablespoons oil, soy sauce, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper; reserve ⅓ cup mixture in a small bowl for dipping.
2. In a large zip-lock style plastic bag combine shrimp with remaining mixture and marinate, turning occasionally to coat shrimp, for 45 minutes in the refrigerator.
3. Drain shrimp and lightly pat dry between paper towels. In a large non-stick skillet heat ½ tablespoon oil over medium-high heat until hot; sauté half of shrimp until golden brown and cooked through, about 1½ minutes on each side. Sauté remaining shrimp in remaining ½ tablespoon oil in same manner.
4. Serve shrimp with reserved dipping sauce.
