Orange Peel Shrimp is a quick and easy seafood dinner idea that will quickly become a favorite. Serve this easy shrimp recipe over some steamed rice with broccoli. That orange glaze is to die for!

I’ve been developing a lot of quick and easy recipes with an Asian twist lately. Korean beef bulgogi has been a longtime favorite, and Thai shrimp salad is definitely a new favorite, but I’ve also been perfecting classics like Sichuan shrimp and broccoli, Kung Pao chicken, and Chinese pepper steak. All of these recipes are ready in about 15 minutes and packed with flavor. They have incredible dinners for busy nights that are quick and easy, delicious and sure to impress.

This orange peel shrimp recipe is no exception. It’s ready in 15 minutes and easily serves as a complete meal. Steam some rice first, prep your shrimp, then pop some steamed broccoli in the microwave before you’re done, and you’ve got a complete meal with dinner on the table in 15 minutes. It’s less time than a drive-by and this stuff tastes better, I promise!

Shrimp with orange peel tossed with fresh chopped green onions in a white bowl

This recipe has some nice orange zest. You can use orange zest, or feel free to grate the zest into longer strips if you prefer. When the peel is fried in oil, it becomes crispy and delicious. You can also toss the shrimp with fresh orange wedges at the end so your oranges don’t go to waste. Super delicious!

I put this recipe on the less spicy side, with the only heat coming from the red pepper flakes. You can easily add some extra heat by doubling the red pepper flakes and adding some optional Sriracha sauce. If you can’t feel the heat at all, you can always dial down the red pepper flakes or leave them all together.
