This was super delicious! I made it into appetizer servings, but wish I had made it a main dish. The shrimp was flavorful (and easy) and I could have eaten the melon salsa all day. Perhaps I will since I have more melons, etc.

This was very tasty, and I think the shrimp could be served on their own as an appetizer! The salsa was deliciously different and mild, moreso than other fruit salsas I have had. Made by a Saucy Senorita for ZWT5.
