Habanero-Mango Shrimp & Kale Bowl

2-4 servings Prep time: 20 min Cook time: 5 min

This recipe is like a summery beachside meal packed into one super protein-rich, satisfying bowl. The Garlic Lime Shrimp are served with an abundance of kale, watermelon radish, mango, avocado, and quinoa and then tossed with a sweet and spicy Habanero Mango Dressing. 

It’s an incredible combination of flavors and textures that provides a rainbow of phytonutrients along with metabolism supporting protein in every bite. Feel free to get creative—you can sub in any type of kale, opt for cauliflower rice instead of quinoa, or use whatever type of radish you can find. And if you’re not a fan of heat, simply leave the habanero out of the dressing or swap with a milder pepper.
