Preheat an outdoor grill or stovetop grill pan to high heat.
In a bowl, combine the EVOO, orange juice and zest, and salt and pepper to taste. Add the shrimp and toss to coat the shrimp completely.

Remove the shrimp from the grill onto a backing sheet or large plate in a single layer. Place in the refrigerator to chill.
