Shrimp Bowl

2 Servings

Forget fast food and make these instead! They are so much better for you and better tasting. These bowls are super healthy and fresh. The mango salsa is so refreshing and adds a nice relief to the heat of the shrimp. I love this meal because it is another super balanced and filling dish but leaves you feeling light yet satisfied.


Shrimp is such an amazing protein and probably the quickest one to cook! They only take1-2 minutes per side and when seasoned well, are so delicious.


For this recipe I used homemade sauces, but store bought works as well.
