Spicy Shrimp with Sweet Grapefruit Glaze

This recipe for Spicy Shrimp with Sweet Grapefruit Glaze is sponsored by Sweet Scarletts and Millennial Blogs, all opinions are 100% mine.

These Spicy Shrimp with Sweet Grapefruit Glaze are easy enough to prepare as a weeknight dinner yet wonderful enough to be served to guests on the weekend. Succulent large shrimp are first sautéed with chili-garlic sauce and cilantro, then finished with a sweet grapefruit glaze. The fiery notes of this dish are perfectly complimented with a tart sweetness from the grapefruit glaze.

My fruit-loving kids have been on a grapefruit kick lately and those bags of Sweet Scarletts Texas Red Grapefruit have been calling to me. "Make something with me!" So, I obliged - because how could I say no to that sweet face?

We have been enjoying these sweet grapefruits in the morning with breakfast {a splendid way to start the day with half of a grapefruit containing 100% the daily value of vitamin C!} so I decided to switch things up and add them to a savory dinner dish. My kiddos like spicy dishes, but nothing too hot - so this recipe for Spicy Shrimp with Sweet Grapefruit Glaze was perfect! The natural sweetness of grapefruit works fabulous to tone-down the heat in this dish and I love that there's no sugar involved, just natural fresh-squeezed goodness. These shrimp are the perfect marriage of sweet and spicy, not to sweet and not too spicy - and absolutely fabulous on your taste-buds.

Spicy Shrimp with Sweet Grapefruit Glaze
½ cup fresh squeezed grapefruit juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon raw honey
1 teaspoon grapefruit zest, diced

1lb large shrimp, deveined and shelled {leave or remove tails}
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons chili-garlic sauce {found in ethnic aisle of grocery store}
1 teaspoon diced cilantro

1 In small saucepan stir together grapefruit juice, olive oil, raw honey and grapefruit zest. Bring to boil, lower heat and let gently simmer.
2 In skillet heat olive oil and chili-garlic sauce over medium-high until just starting to bubble. Add shrimp and sauté for 5-7 minutes, until shrimp has turned pink and sauce is mostly gone. Add grapefruit sauce, stir to evenly coat and simmer for 2-3 minutes. Most sauce should be evaporated.
3 Serve warm and enjoy! {we enjoyed ours with white rice, zucchini, and grapefruit slices}

Super Heroes Cereal {with $1 off coupon}

It's less than a month away until Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice makes it's way into theaters nationwide! My family can't get enough of comic books and super heroes, so we are counting down the days until we can see this action-packed saga on the big screen. In anticipation of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice we have been brushing up on previous Batman™ and Superman™ cartoons, movies and comic books. When I heard there were Batman and Superman cereals headed to stores I knew they would be perfect for the super hero frenzy my family is in.

Since you can't have Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice without both Batman AND Superman - we got a box of both cereals; Batman ™ Chocolate Strawberry and Superman™ Caramel Crunch. Both of these cereals use NO colors from artificial sources, NO artificial flavors, and NO high fructose corn syrup. They have only 9 grams of sugar per serving, are a good source of Calcium and Vitamin D, and 12g of whole grain per serving.

General Mills is also including custom collectible comic books {4 to collect!!} in specially marked boxes of Honey Nut Cheerios and Trix. These comic books are included in the boxes and don't need to be mail-ordered - score!
