Light, crunchy and bursting with sweet flavor, Florida orange juice and ginger–marinated shrimp rolls fill the senses with a taste of summer. A Florida orange and sriracha dipping sauce adds an extra kick of citrus.

Ingredients

2 cups Florida orange juice
2 tablespoons fresh ginger, cut into julienne
1 cup daikon radish, cut into julienne
1 cup carrot, cut into julienne
1 ½ pounds (16-20 count) shrimp
6 summer roll wrappers
1 bunch mint, whole leaves removed
2 tablespoons sriracha sauce

Steps

Combine orange juice and ginger in small saucepan; bring to a boil. Cook over medium heat; reduce to one-half volume.

Place radish and carrot in orange juice mixture; blanch for 20 seconds. Remove ginger, radish and carrot and place in ice water bath; drain on paper towels.

Cool orange juice mixture; reserve.

Bring 8-quart pot of water to a boil. Peel and devein shrimp; slice shrimp in half lengthwise. Add shrimp to boiling water. When water returns to a boil, cook shrimp for approximately 4 minutes or just until cooked through and pink. Remove shrimp from boiling water; place in ice water bath.

Place summer roll wrappers in medium bowl; cover with cold water to soften.

Place one summer roll wrapper on a cutting board. Place four shrimp halves in single line along middle of wrapper. Place small amount of ginger, carrot and radish on top of shrimp. Lay several mint leaves on top.

Fold in both ends of summer roll wrapper, then fold in one side and roll up. Repeat with remaining wrappers.

Add sriracha to orange juice reduction; stir. Cut summer rolls in half on the bias, if desired. Serve with Florida Orange-Sriracha Dipping Sauce.

Give leftover brine new life by adding it to vegetables. In an interview with Food52, Stuart Brioza, chef and owner of State Bird Provisions in San Francisco, says that he adds a splash of leftover brine while sauteeing mushrooms to increase their flavor profile. “We like to ferment turnips at the restaurant, and it’s a great way to use that brine—though dill pickle brine would work just as well,” he says.

Great responses flooded in from across the country, and it was tough to narrow down which would make it into the cover story. A few even came in after the piece was finished. Laura Thompson, resident district manager for Aramark at James Madison University,...
