Shrimp Salad with Blood Oranges and Slivered Fennel

I came across blood oranges in the store recently and wondered what to make with them.  This recipe lets me combine seafood and citrus. Perfect!  Pair this dish with one of Wildaire’s wonderful aromatic whites, no need to wait till summer to drink white wine, and enjoy. shopwildaire
