Who says dishes that are packed with complex flavors have to take forever to make? Certainly not PartySugar, because I'm proposing that we make an intriguing and delectable dinner tonight in a little over 15 minutes! Shrimp is the perfect ingredient for quick cooking because it takes on the taste of the flavorings. In this case the surprising combination of jalapeño, orange peel, and thyme create a shrimp that is spicy, scrumptious, and full of layers. Serve the shrimp and tomato sauce over brown rice or whole wheat couscous for a healthy and delicious meal. Pair with a cold beer and you're in business. Make your grocery list and read more

1 tsp. grated orange zest
1 tsp. chopped fresh thyme leaves or 1/2 tsp. dried thyme leaves
1 14 1/2-oz. can fire-roasted diced tomatoes, undrained. (If fire-roasted tomatoes are unavailable, use regular canned diced tomatoes.)
