Grilled Shrimp Wrap with Mango Salsa is one of my favorite summer-time meals!
I love the Caribbean Jerk seasoning on the barbecued shrimp; what flavor.
Wrap it up in a tortilla with crunchy romaine lettuce, some really good brand sweet and savory mango salsa and it takes this to gourmet 5-Star level.
You’d never guess it’s a healthy dish because it tastes that good.
If you want to try another shrimp recipe, another favorite is this Sassy Orange Grilled Shrimp.
