I’ve always been a huge fan of shrimp. Don’t know where it comes from, I think they are just freakin delicious. They are tricky to cook though. I started out buying cooked shrimp and then cooking them with the dish, but they would always end up tough and over cooked. Maybe I was doing it wrong lol.
So I started buying raw shrimp and learned how to clean them correctly, cause no one wants shrimp poop in their dish (check recipe notes). Being able to cook them from a raw state, you have more control over how they come out and they taste much fresher.
Another thing I absolutely love is Mexican food. Now I am not 100% sure that cilantro lime rice is Mexican but its in the general vicinity. And well if you mix that with black beans and shrimp, we’ll go with it.
The amount of ingredients is minimal and oh so easy to make. The dish in total gave me three servings, so yes I actually ate this yummyness for three lunches in a row.
Now let’s talk about this mango pineapple salsa. I found this jar at my local grocery store and thought it would be a perfect addition to any tropical shrimp or fish dish. And the ingredients are just to die for, as in they are all actual food and you can pronounce all of them. Now that is fantastic. I always try to pick out pre-made food at the grocery store that has the least amount of ingredients and no weird additives or preservatives.
Pair this dish with your favorite drink, beer, whatever… My Corona light was the perfect combination with this yummy dish. Only 99 calories for the health factor.
