Mango Lime Shrimp over Quinoa

Tuesday, March 24, 2015

From our skinny table to yours...

If we keep making 'springy' meals does that mean warmer weather will finally be here to stay?  That's our plan and we're sticking to it ;)!  This light and refreshing springtime meal is SO delicious and oh so easy.  Does it get any better than a 4 ingredient sauce?  UM.. don't think so!!

We start off by making our sauce in the food processor/blender.  Simply toss in fresh mangos (obsessed this time of year) with lime juice, cilantro and honey and call it a day!  We then sauté up our shrimp in coconut oil along with garlic and red chili flakes.. we LOVE the heat alongside the sweet!  Broccoli went in the pan next for a veg and then we served this up over our favorite little grain, quinoa!!

We then topped this dish with fresh cilantro and a touch of pico de gallo!  Talk about a pretty meal :)  Hope you love as much as we do!
