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 [1].

Enjoy!
