In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Add shrimp and cook until opaque throughout or it just turns pink, about 3-minutes, turning over once. Transfer to a warm plate.

Reduce heat to medium. Add butter and garlic to skillet and sauté garlic for about 2 minutes. Add orange juice and cook for one minute, add reserved cooking juice for desired consistency. Remove from heat and stir in cilantro or parsley.  Add pasta and shrimp and toss to combine well.

Serve hot with orange wedges and some grated Parmesan cheese, if desired.

Cook’s Hint: Tangerines or lemons may be substituted for the oranges, if desired.
