Irresistible Grilled Shrimp with Fruit Salsa

These skewers are super lean and scrumptious—especially when dipped in the fresh fruit salsa. We rave about the salsa's sweet heat and the shrimp's party-pretty look. —Agnes Ward, Stratford, Ontario

    Tried this on my husband who isn't crazy about shrimp. He loved it! After I took the chicken out of the marinade I cooked the marinade until it thickened and then basted the shrimp as it was being grilled.

    Absolutely delicious! Everyone in my family of six really liked the flavor of the shrimp and the taste of the salsa. This almost never happens where we all like a particular recipe.

    What a great way to enjoy shrimp. This was one of the best shrimp recipes that my husband and I have ever had. The only thing that I changed was I omitted the Pepper Flakes and substituted 1/2 tsp of hot sauce. The fruit salsa was a salsa for all foods. I made several batches to serve with grilled chicken and my guests raved about it.
