Key Lime Shrimp Salad

I’m a Florida girl- born and raised in Southeast Florida. That means that I:

A.  have never seen snow

B. have Avocado trees surrounding me

C. have an equal amount of mango, papaya, citrus

D. wear flip flops and sandals year round

E. have easy access to seafood

So, when I was thinking up dishes for #brunchweek, I just knew there had to be shrimp salad. Now, you might wonder why I used the dainty salad shrimp for this and not the big pink Key West Shrimp I had used for my Walkerswood shrimp.

Two reasons: I had them on hand. and they’re salad shrimp. Easy enough, huh?

I did, however, “Florida-fy” the recipe by adding some fresh Key Lime juice and a dash of citrus zest. The original recipe was based off one that was over 60 years old… this one is much “lighter” Enjoy!
