Author Notes: My mother saw this recipe title Jalapeno Orange Shrimp w/Broccoli and Brown Rice that came from the Daily News in USA Weekend in April 2013. She urged me to take a shot at it and see how it would come out when I put my own twist to it and boy did I hear a lot of oooo’s and mmmmm noises when people ate it.

I completely changed and omitted the Jalapeno, garlic, grapeseed oil, and black pepper to include the ingredients below. I recently made it for a potluck lunch at work and got some decent reviews for it and a request for the recipe which definitely put a smile on my face!!

Try it out and let me know how many people compliment you on this dish!

*Note* Use sweet Riesling such as Barefoot brand sweet Riesling or the taste will be a bit bitter.
