Shrimp, tomatoes, cilantro, red onion and lime are combined to create a zesty protein-rich salsa. Bring this to a party and watch it disappear!
This shrimp salsa is low-fat, gluten-free and perfect for low-carb diets, but you can switch it up and add black beans to boost the fiber, or roasted corn to add a touch of sweetness, and even avocado to add some healthy fats. Add more jalapeño to make it spicier and adjust the lime, cilantro and salt to suit your taste. You see where I’m going with this…. the possibilities are endless!
I found these great black bean chips called Beanitos that are high in fiber which makes you feel full longer, low-glycemic, gluten-free and are high in protein, 10 chips are 3 points plus. My husband and daughter love them with guacamole or salsa.
