WHAT TO SERVE WITH BUTTER SHRIMP?


We personally like serving our Butter Shrimp recipe with a side of Mango Salsa for an added layer of freshness and flavor. Mix all these ingredients together:


1 mango or 2 cups of pineapple chunks

1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 lime (zest and juice)

¼ cup cilantro, roughly chopped

Salt to taste


Serve your Premier Food Market Shrimp over rice and top it with this delicious Mango Salsa, and voila! A delicious 20-minute meal.
