Orange Baja Shrimp

This is one of our favorite marinades for shrimp.  Last summer the seasoning packets were on sale 10 for $10, and I think I've maybe got one left, since I have been trying to shake up the menu this year (hence this "blog").  The seasoning packet has the two preparation instructions on it, and this is the little one in the bottom corner.  I made extra shrimp with the hope of leftovers...that didn't happen.  This really isn't a recipe - more of a serving suggestion.  You can get creative with it.  I usually saute the shrimp in a pan and sometimes put on a salad with some avocado and tomato, using the pan drippings as a dressing.  This time I put them on skewers with pineapple and red pepper and it was an outstanding flavor combination.
