Why is it that the best recipes come out of necessity? I was feeling lazy and did not want to go to the grocery store so I used all the leftovers in my pantry, freezer, and herb garden and they came together like magic. These shrimp were light, flavorful, easy and delicious. The rosemary and tangerine worked beautifully together, but I think oranges would be fine too. Great with the white bean puree, also dug up from the pantry, but would be good with rice or pasta as well.
