It's OK. The shrimp have a very nice flavor after they are marinated. I at them plain because the salsa flavor overwhelmed the shrimp to the point that you could not taste them. The salsa was fine, but it makes enough to feed an army. Also, we just served the cantaloupe on the plate and not on separate skewers, since it wasn't cooked.
