5 stars from 17 ratings of Quick and Easy Orange-Mint Marinated Shrimp Bowl

Cook Time

Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 2 min
Ready in: 22 min
Yields: 10 servings

Kitchenware Required

  • a bowl (5 to 6 inches in diameter, and roughly 3 inches deep)
  • a serving platter with 1/2 inch sides
  • a medium to large pot
  • a colander
  • a vegetable peeler
  • an empty glass jar with a screw top lid
  • a large flat plate


  • 2 pounds frozen cooked shrimp (with tails), thawed
  • 2 ounces white wine vinegar
  • 2 ounces extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 ounce orange juice
  • 3/4 teaspoon finely shredded orange peel
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon style mustard
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 1/2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons snipped fresh mint
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, (divided)


  1. Prepare the orange-mint marinade: In the empty glass jar add the vinegar, olive oil, orange juice, orange peel, Dijon mustard, honey, garlic, mint, ginger, and salt. Screw the lid on, and shake well. Set aside.
  2. Arrange your thawed cooked shrimp in circular layers in your bowl that is approximately 5 to 6 inches in diameter, and 3 inches deep. Lay each shrimp so that the tail is toward the center of the bowl, and the curved shrimp back faces toward the outside of the bowl. Press down on the shrimp with the bottom of a small plate after every few layers to pack them fairly tightly into the bowl. Once the bowl is full, again press down with your plate.
  3. Pour the marinade over your shrimp; cover and refrigerate overnight . Once or twice during refrigeration, hold a large flat plate tightly over the top of the bowl, and carefully flip the bowl over for a few seconds to distribute the marinade.
  4. Drain the marinade by placing the large plate just off center over the top of the bowl so that when inverted there will be a small opening for the marinade to drain without the shrimp falling out. Continue inverting as necessary until all of the marinade has drained, and discard the marinade.
  5. Carefully transfer the shrimp from the bowl to your serving platter. To do this, place the serving platter over the bowl, carefully flip it over to unmold, and remove the bowl.
  6. Enjoy! Hopefully you found this recipe to be helpful, and I hope you'll enjoy some of my other delicious shrimp recipes listed below the nutritional information as well.
