  1. 1 tablespoon sambal oelek or other Asian chile sauce
  2. 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  4. 1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
  5. 1 tablespoon chopped oregano
  6. 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing

The strong flavors of this shrimp dish—as well as the wine poured with it, a vibrant Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc—are ideal for a bold-spirited Aries.
