Grilled Shrimp- Yummy! Add in some mango salsa and it takes it to gourmet level. Put it all in a wrap and it’s 5 STAR A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!!!
I went on a business trip with Stan to California and at the luncheon they served a wrap which I just had to recreate with my own spin and tweeks. I added some slightly spicy seasoning to the shrimp and then grilled them. Balanced it with sweet mango salsa and the crunch of the romaine lettuce made it fabulous. This is a healthy wrap that is easy to put together and you can easily stretch the shrimp to make it cost effective, even for those of us who do not have access to an ocean. I hope you give this one a try, we loved it!
