Shrimp with Mango Avocado Salsa

As the weather gets warmer and we approach summer, I love fresh, hydrating recipes. This Shrimp With Mango Avocado Salsa is one of my favorites! It is so simple and delicious and tastes so refreshing.

The shrimp is cooked in honey and garlic for flavor. It is then topped over a mango avocado salsa and served cold. You can substitute the mango for 1 cup cubed pineapple as well and it tastes equally delicious. This dish is topped with a fresh squeeze of lime juice.

This Shrimp With Mango Avocado Salsa is both gluten free and paleo. If you want to make it whole 30, skip the honey. This recipe makes about two servings.
