Shrimp Wrap

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!

Tilapia with Fresh Mango Salsa 14You can either preheat an oven to 350 degrees or an outdoor grill to medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate. Remove the tilapia from the marinade and either:       Place on a foil lined baking pan and bake for 10-15 minutes depending on the thickness of the fish; until it flakes and is cooked through.  OR Grill until the fillets are no longer translucent in the center and flakes easily with a fork, 3-4 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the fish. Serve the cooked fish with the mango salsa.
