Peruvian Shrimp with Green Sauce

Shrimp on its own is a great thing to include in your food rotation. Paired with cocktail sauce, it can end up adding a lot of salt and sugar to your day. If you love shrimp with cocktail sauce, this sauce provides tang and a little heat with a nice balance of nutrition.

Tip: If using wooden or bamboo skewers, soak in water for 10 minutes before threading with shrimp.
