This is a marvelous recipe and similar to one that my Brother made from time to time. It is adapted from an earlier Southern Home magazine recipe.

Makes about 12 to15 appetizer servings or feeds 5 to 6 hungry folks.  


Marinated Tropical Shrimp

3 lemons, halved
2 limes, halved
1 orange, halved
2 tablespoons Cajun Seasoning
1 tablespoon crushed red pepper
6 pounds unpeeled, large fresh shrimp
2 cups fresh orange juice
2 cups grapefruit juice
2 cups pineapple juice
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
1 lemon, sliced
1 orange, sliced
1 lime, sliced
1 grapefruit, sliced
1 teaspoon Cajun Seasoning
Dried crushed red pepper if desired

Combine the first 5 ingredients in a large stockpot and bring to a boil. Cook for 5 minutes. Add the shrimp and cook 2 to 3 minutes or until shrimp just turns pink. Remove and plunge shrimp into ice water to stop the cooking process and drain well. Peel shrimp leaving tails on. Devein, if desired.
Combine orange juice and next 10 ingredients in a large sealed container or heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag. Add shrimp, cover or seal and chill for half an hour or up to an hour. Drain off liquid.

Serve shrimp with Louis Sauce. Garnish with the sliced fruit if desired.
