Citrus-Jalapeño Shrimp


Jill Donenfeld of The Dish's Dish loves these shrimp because their "ethnically nebulous" citrus and chile flavors go with so many different kinds of food. She especially likes to serve the shrimp with the Butternut-Squash-and-Sage Wontons; the shrimp can also be chilled to add into salads.
