Cilantro Lime Shrimp with Mango Avocado Salsa

Cilantro Lime Shrimp with Mango Avocado SalsaIf you like to impress guests with little effort, this is the meal to serve!

Its fruity tropical flare is perfect for those of us cruising the Caribbean and other warm waters. And, if you find yourself in colder climes the beautiful colors and rich succulent seafood will have you feeling toasty in no time.

Make the salsa first so you can serve the shrimp piping hot out of the pan.

Pair this with one of our favorite bread recipes for your galley.
