My husband LOVES shrimp. It’s about the only seafood he’s crazy about. And I love salsa, so this is one of those duo recipes – make & mix without the shrimp then divide it and add the meat to his and leave mine without. Perfect!
I love the fresh ingredients used in this one and will be making it soon. When I do, I’ll be using Wild Planet Pink Shrimp. Why? Because it is MSC Certified and contains no phosphates or anything artificial. My husband is worth it – he’s a keeper
Not a shrimp fan? Toss in your own favorite crustacean and substitute some Old Bay Seasoning in place of the cumin for a unique taste and serve on soda crackers or similar.
