For the Shrimp:

  • 2 lbs peeled, deveined, jumbo raw shrimp w/ tail (26-30 per lb)
  • 1 tsp baking soda

For the Sauce:

  • 18 oz orange marmalade (we tested 3 brands and prefer Smuckers)

Optional Garnishes:

  • 27 ea mini orange slices
  • 27 ea small basil leaves


For the Sauce

  • Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and puree until you’ve reached your desired texture. We like a nice creamy nappe consistency. Divide between 27 shooter glasses.

For the Shrimp

  • Set the temperature of the sous vide to 140F.
  • Rinse the shrimp under cold running water, drain and add to a bowl.
  • Toss shrimp with baking soda.
  • Add shrimp to as many vacuum bags as are necessary for one layer of shrimp and vacuum seal.
  • Sous vide for 15 minutes, then immediately remove from the water bath.
  • Manually chill in the bag(s) for 90 minutes in a PrepRite by Everidge blast chiller.
  • Serve 2 shrimp per sauced shooter glass, and garnish with an orange slice and basil leaf. ENJOY!
