Crisp. Cool. Flavors.
I feel like that is the epitome of what you want your summer time dishes to encompass.
This dish is sure to bring the flavors of a tropical day to your plate. Also, shrimp is a rich source of protein, which helps to contribute to cellular and muscular healing, growth, and regeneration. Your standard 3-ounce portion provides 18 grams!
