From Market to Kitchen: 5:30 Challenge
For most of us, it's hard to think about being creative when planning weekday meals. But there's no reason to sacrifice preparing a healthful meal with fresh and vibrant flavors, especially when it's as easy as this one.
This recipe pairs quick-cooking shrimp with grapefruit. Slivers of fresh mint bring it to life and echo another seasonal flavor. Depending what the weather is like (the recent variances in temperature keep us guessing), you can broil the shrimp or fire up an indoor or outdoor grill.
Give yourself a break by purchasing peeled raw shrimp and taking it easy on the sides.
Hands on time: Total time: 30 minutes Serves: 4
1/4 cup slivered fresh mint

Preheat the broiler or grill. Cook shrimp until just done, 2 to 3 minutes per side, flipping once. Place in a shallow serving bowl and drizzle with reserved marinade before serving.
