Featured Recipe: Fiesta shrimp
- 4 ounces raw large shrimp, peeled and deveined (smaller shrimp cook faster)

- 1 corn tortilla
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. In the meantime, put tortilla between damp paper towel and microwave on high for 20 to 30 seconds.
