COCONUT LIME SHRIMP on the menu tonight! This is such a killer recipe if you are craving something spicy and sweet and DELICIOUS, but only have 15 minutes to spare to make dinner (aka me always). You may recognize this recipe from my coconut lime chicken and yes, it’s literally the same recipe except I added some bell pepper this time. You can make this with any protein or just veggies – it’s SO good!
