Wished I had made more shrimp. Very delicious. Added chopped tomatoes. Could see a slice of avocado with this meal. Yummy!

The apple slaw is a new fav. Used pickled jalapenos and white onion (what I had on hand) and it worked out fine. Loved the crisp fresh taste.

Delicious, healthy, and super easy! We did everything on an outdoor grill, and it turned out great! Grated the apple instead of slicing it to create more of a spicy "slaw" - will def do this again!

We really enjoyed it and would have given another 1/2 star if we could. We are not fans of jalapenos so substituted New Mexico Green chile and use Chimayo red powder instead of the red chili powder. All was done on the out door grill instead of a grill pan.

A new favorite. Love the heat of the jalapenos with the cool of the apples.
