Shrimp in Chocolate Sauce

adapted from http://www.carina-forum.com/carina/

Shrimps - about 8 tiger shrimps or 24 small shrimps
Garlic, minced - 3 cloves
Chili pepper, finely minced - 1 small
Walnut oil - 2 tablespoons
Orange juice - 1 orange
Orange zest - 1/2 orange
Lemon juice - to taste (if orange is too sweet)
Dark chocolate (85% or 99%), chopped - 15 g
White wine - 3 tablespoons

- In a small pot, heat the orange juice, orange zest and wine. Do not boil. When it is hot, add the chocolate and remove from heat. Whisk the mixture to melt the chocolate. Add some lemon juice if the sauce is too sweet.
- In a skillet, heat the oil and add garlic and chili. Saute for a minute, remove garlic and chili from oil, save the garlic mixture.
- In the same skillet, add the shrimp to oil and saute till the shrimp is done.
- Pour the chocolate sauce into the skillet over the shrimp, add garlic and chili, saute until the sauce thickens a little bit. Serve immediately.

- I recently purchased a spicy apple wine with peppercorns, so I used that and omitted the chili pepper.
- It is an unusual combination, but it works! I had 85% chocolate and 99% would work much better I think.
