Makes

4 Servings

Serves 3

3 southwest egglife® wraps

½ lb. shrimp (about 9 pieces), peeled and deveined * (note: you could also use cooked shrimp for this recipe.  Instead of cooking for 5 minutes, add shrimp to the hot pan and just warm through.)

1 tbsp olive oil

Marinade

1 clove garlic, minced

½ tsp salt

½ tsp paprika

¼ tsp cayenne

1 tbsp lime juice

1 tbsp olive oil

Mango Salsa

1 mango diced

½ cup red pepper (note: this is very spicy!  Use less for more mild spice.)

1 jalapeno pepper – de-stemmed and seeded

¼ cup red onion

1 tbsp lime juice

1 tbsp cilantro

sea salt to taste

optional garnish: fresh sliced avocado

Directions

STEP 1

First, make the marinade.  In a small bowl, whisk together marinade ingredients.  Add shrimp and toss to coat.  Allow to marinate at least 10 minutes, but no longer than 30.

STEP 2

While shrimp is marinating, put all salsa ingredients in a separate bowl and mix to combine.  Taste and add salt as needed.

STEP 3

To make shrimp, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a sauté pan over medium heat.  When the pan is hot, add shrimp and cook until the flesh is pink, about 5 minutes.

STEP 4

Top each southwest wrap with three shrimp, a spoonful of salsa, and sliced avocado if desired.  Serve with lime wedges.

    I made this the first time and it was extremely spicy.. Is a 1/2 cup of the red pepper correct. That amount seems extreme for a 1/2 lb of shrimp.
