Ingredients

  • 2

    navel oranges

  • 2

    teaspoons hot sauce

  • ¼

    cup plus 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • 2

    tablespoons chopped mint

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • 24

    large shrimp (about 1½ pounds), shelled and deveined

  • 3

    tablespoons fresh lime juice

  • 1

    cup cherry tomatoes, halved

  • ½

    small red onion, thinly sliced

  • ¼

    cup coarsely chopped cilantro

  • Pinch of dried oregano

  • 2

    Hass avocados, cut into thin wedges

Directions

Using a sharp knife, peel the oranges, removing all of the bitter white pith. Working over a strainer set over a medium bowl, cut between the membranes to release the orange sections into the strainer. Squeeze the juice from the membranes into the bowl through the strainer. Whisk 1 teaspoon of the hot sauce into the strained juice with 1 tablespoon of the oil and the mint. Season with salt and pepper; add the shrimp and toss. 2. In another bowl, combine the lime juice with the remaining 1/4 cup of oil and 1 teaspoon of hot sauce. Add the tomatoes, onion, cilantro and oregano and the orange sections. Season lightly with salt. 3. Light a grill or heat a grill pan. Grill the shrimp over high heat for about 4 minutes, turning once or twice until lightly charred and cooked through. Transfer the shrimp to plates. Gently fold the avocados into the orange salad and serve alongside the shrimp.
