Skinny Shrimp Salsa

Today’s recipe just screamed ‘SUMMER’ at me.  It’s such an easy and neat idea yet one that hadn’t occurred to me.  This recipe is courtesy of Gina’s Skinny Recipes, her website is  It’s mostly geared towards Weight Watchers recipes but you can find a lot of P10-worthy recipes there too.

Shrimp, tomatoes, cilantro, red onion and lime are combined to create a zesty protein rich salsa. Bring this to a party and watch it disappear!

This shrimp salsa is low-fat, gluten-free and perfect for low-carb diets, but you can switch it up and add black beans to boost the fiber, or roasted corn to add a touch of sweetness, and even avocado to add some healthy fats. Add more jalapeƱo to make it spicier and adjust the lime, cilantro and salt to suit your taste. You see where I'm going with this.... the possibilities are endless!
