Gingered Orange Shrimp

This gingered orange shrimp is both super easy and deliciously elegant.  It would make a great Valentine’s Day dinner because it is fairly impressive, but isn’t too time consuming to make.  With Valentine’s Day being on a work day this year, time is important.  I served it with rainbow couscous and steamed artichokes, and it made a wonderful meal for two.
