Shrimps in spicy orange sauce

I have just started eating sea food and was wondering , what took me so long…I have been born and brought up in northern part of the country , where sea food was rare to get…We ate fresh water fishes and that too not on a regular basis….I think that was the reason that though I am a die heart Non vegetarian , I had some inhibition for sea food….

Then one day,I gathered all the courage and announced that I want to eat prawns today….And Mohit  very gingerly took me to a fancy place for my very first encounter with these beauties….Now I have started cooking shrimps and prawns at home, and like to experiment with them….So here is what I did with my batch…
