1 TBSP olive oil
1 red bell pepper, sliced into thin strips
1 ½ pounds large shrimp, shelled and deveined
½ tsp. salt

Grate 1 teaspoon orange peel from one of the oranges, then squeeze out ¼ cup orange juice and set the juice aside. Peel the remaining oranges, slice into rounds, and cut slices in half. Set orange slices aside.
