We’ve been enjoying the summer season for more than a few weeks already, and I love these all of these light and refreshing dishes. Shrimp are one of my go to proteins in the summer, because they’re quick and make a great light meal. This recipe for Citrus Roasted Shrimp is a summer staple in my house, and the tang of citrus gives wonderful flavor to these delicious shrimp. Add these to a salad, as an appetizer or serve with dinner, either way they’re OMG yum! Not to mention, they’ll be a serious hit.

Coat the shrimp with a very light drizzle of olive oil, fresh orange and lemon juice, a little zest from the fruits and thats it! It really is that easy, and you won’t believe how fresh and delicious this is!
