admin's picture
  Curry powder 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Hot pepper sauce 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Egg 1
  Fine dry bread crumbs 1 Cup (16 tbs), unseasoned
  Medium shrimp 1 1⁄2 Pound, shelled and deveined
  Olive oil 2 Tablespoon
  Unsalted butter 10 Tablespoon, cut into small pieces (1 Stick Plus 2 Tablespoons)
  Orange juice 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Fresh lime juice 3 Tablespoon
  Grated orange zest 3 Tablespoon
  Chopped cilantro 3 Tablespoon
  Honey 1 Tablespoon
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Shredded romaine lettuce 3 Cup (48 tbs)

1. Preheat the broiler. Lightly oil a medium roasting pan.
2. In a small bowl, blend the curry powder and 1 teaspoon of the hot pepper sauce. Add the egg and beat thoroughly. Place the bread crumbs in a separate small bowl.
3. Dip the shrimp first in the egg mixture, then in the bread crumbs, coating them evenly. Arrange them in a single layer in the prepared roasting pan, leaving space between them. Drizzle the breaded shrimp with the oil and dot with 4 tablespoons of the butter.
4. Broil the shrimp, turning once, for 7 minutes, or until cooked through and golden. Transfer the shrimp to a platter and cover loosely with foil to keep warm.
5. Place the roasting pan on top of the stove over low heat. Add the orange and lime juices, orange zest, cilantro, honey, salt, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce. Add the remaining 6 tablespoons butter a piece at a time, stirring well to incorporate each piece.
6. Surround the shrimp with the shredded lettuce and serve the sauce on the side.
