Ingredients

2 navel oranges

1 1/2 pounds medium shrimp (32 total), shelled and deveined

2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 teaspoon minced and mashed garlic

For sauce:

1/2 cup mayonnaise

3 tablespoons ketchup

1 1/2 tablespoons Cognac

2 teaspoons fresh lime juice, or to taste

1/2 teaspoon sugar

1 Pinch cayenne, or chipotle powder

1 Jalapeno, minced

2 firm-ripe California avocados canned hearts of palm, drained, rinsed, patted dry, and cut crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces

Directions

With a sharp knife cut a slice from top and bottom of each orange, exposing flesh, and arrange with a cut side down on a cutting board. Cutting from top to bottom, remove peel and pith. Working over a bowl, cut orange sections free from membranes, letting sections drop into bowl, and squeeze in excess juice from membranes. Into a large saucepan of boiling salted water plunge shrimp and poach at a bare simmer just until firm, 1 to 2 minutes. Drain shrimp in a colander and transfer to a large bowl. While shrimp are still warm add oil, garlic, and 1 tablespoon juice from orange sections, stirring to coat shrimp. Let shrimp cool to room temperature.

In a small bowl whisk together sauce ingredients until smooth. Sauce may be made 1 day ahead and chilled, covered. Halve avocados lengthwise, remove pit. Transfer orange sections with a slotted spoon to shrimp mixture and add hearts of palm, folding ingredients together gently. Divide salad among avocado halves, mounding it, and spoon sauce over salad.

"This is my go to spaghetti recipe. My family loves it and my super picky daughter requests it all the time. The only change I make is to do 1lb mild Italian sausage and 1lb ground beef. We like a little less of the fennel flavor. Definitely a great recipe, thanks for sharing!" - crashsmom

"I followed the recipe exactly-once for Christmas Day, the next time for New year's Eve. Both times it was a big hit, with people asking how I made it. I added some frozen fruit icecubes & I made sure the Golden Circle fruit juice packs & soft drink bottles were in the freezer for a while before I made them, so that they were-not frozen of course-but icy cold. There were a few slivers of ice in the fruit juice actually. Very easy to make, liked by just about everyone. Good recipe to have." - sherri3802
