I love finding new ways to fix shrimp, and this one was a little different. Found it at along with some others which I will post. Time does not include refrigerator time

This is a great blend of flavors. I had no guava or papaya so used mango instead. Replaced lime with lemon. I was surprised at how mild the flavor was. Has some chopped pecans on the counter so I sprinkled a few on top and that was a great addition. Definitely needs to be salted at the table.
