Chili lime shrimp is flavorful, beautiful

May. 12, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

This dish from the American Diabetes Association is not only really flavorful but also beautiful. Serve them on skewers, in a lettuce cup, or over brown rice for a main dish. They are easy and a huge hit at parties.

Chef's Tip: You should be able to find the chili-garlic sauce in the ethnic foods aisle of the grocery store.
