  • 1 tablespoons fresh basil, minced

  1. For the marinade, combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl. Add the shrimp and marinate for about 3 hours in the refrigerator.
  2. When the marinating time is over, make the vegetable sauté. In a sauté pan over medium heat, warm the oil. Add the vegetables and garlic; sauté for 4 minutes, stirring constantly. Season with salt and pepper. Add the balsamic vinegar and continue cooking for 1 minute more.
  3. To make the citrus vinaigrette, combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl. Whisk to dissolve the honey.
  4. Remove the shrimp from the marinade and grill or broil for 2 minutes on each side.
  5. Divide the sautéed vegetables among 6 salad plates, put 3 shrimp on top of each, and pour on the citrus vinaigrette.
