TO MAKE THE MARINADE: Combine all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl. Add the shrimp, and marinate at room temperature for 3 hours.

When the marinating time is over, make the vegetable sauté. In a sauté pan over medium heat, warm the oil. Add the vegetables and garlic; sauté for 4 minutes, stirring constantly. Season with salt and pepper. Add the balsamic vinegar and continue cooking for 1 minute more.

TO MAKE THE CITRUS VINAIGRETTE: Combine all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl. Whisk to dissolve the honey.

Remove the shrimp from the marinade and grill or broil for 2 minutes on each side.

Divide the sautéed vegetables among 6 salad plates, put 3 shrimp on top of each and pour on the citrus vinaigrette.
