I watch MC Australia and MC New Zealand. The 'homes' of the freshest seafood.
It's surprising how often the contestants overcook seafood.
The judges tell they have done so in no uncertain terms.

I completely agree

So many great ideas! Prawns-- or shrimp-- are on sell right now, think I'll go pick up a bit more and try a few of these out.
One thing I have done with shrimp in the past:
Reduce down about 3 cups of orange juice (fresh is best, but store bought works just fine) until it reaches about 1/2 cup.
Throw in garlic, sauté just a bit, then throw in shrimp and sauté until just turning pink. Take it off heat. Add orange zest. Toss with cold/cool/or room temp quinoa mixed with peas and fresh mint, a nice fresh squeeze of an orange over top.
Delish!


I was hoping to grill shrimp tonight, but the weather is rubbish here in South Africa so on the stove top tonight it'll be.
