Shrimp with Black Bean-Mango Salsa

What a wonderful, wonderful Memorial Day weekend. ūüôā

I¬†spent time with family & friends, Darrin and I restored our pool deck, and yummie drinks and food were consumed. On Sunday night we¬†grilled out at our place, with our parents.¬† I follow Iowa Girl Eats’ blog¬†and she posted this “cookout-ish”¬†recipe last week. perrr-fect!

Clean ingredients+fiber (beans)+protein (shrimp+beans)+fruit/veggies (mango+onion+cilantro+lime). I ended up combining the shrimp and salsa into one dish and ate it with tortilla chips.

I’ve been eating the leftovers over the last few days… and have to admit… the dish keeps getting better. Maybe the shrimp is marinating more? I’ll def be making this again!
