Key Lime Shrimp

This dish is all about island breezes and dinner at sunset. It’s simple and delicious. I recommend fresh shrimp if you can get them. While you can use regular limes, key limes bring more flavor. The salsa is the light salad that make the dish pop. I hope you like it. Bogey, here’s looking at you.
