Featured Recipe: Fiesta shrimp

  • Chopped cilantro for garnish
  • 1 corn tortilla

Directions

Put shrimp on one side of pasta bowl, zucchini on the other. Pour salsa over shrimp. Cover with plastic wrap. Microwave on high for 5 minutes. Lift up wrap and sprinkle shrimp with grated cheese; sprinkle cilantro over all. Cover again so cheese will melt.
