Makes about 24 hors d'oeuvres
Active time: 30 minutes
Start to finish: 35 minutes

"This is ridiculously simple and really refreshing. The citrus, cilantro,
and red pepper flakes make for a beautiful balance of hot and sour."

3 large garlic cloves
1 1/8 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup sweet orange marmalade
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 pound large shrimp in shells, (21 to 25 per pound), peeled,
tail and first segment of shell left intact, and deveined
Optional garnish: fresh cilantro sprigs

Using a large knife, mince and mash garlic to a paste with 1 teaspoon salt. Whisk together garlic paste, lime juice, marmalade, cilantro, 3 tablespoons
oil, soy sauce, red pepper flakes, remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt, and pepper in
a small bowl. Transfer 1/3 cup mixture to another small bowl or ramekin
and reserve for dipping sauce. Combine shrimp with remaining mixture in a large sealable plastic bag and seal bag, pressing out excess air. Marinate shrimp, refrigerated, turning bag once, for 15 minutes.
Drain shrimp and gently pat dry. Heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over moderately high heat. Add half of shrimp and cook, turning occasionally, until golden brown and just cooked through, about 3 minutes total. Transfer shrimp to a platter and cook remaining shrimp in remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in same manner.
Garnish shrimp with cilantro, if desired, and serve with dipping sauce.
