Happy Cinco de Mayo my party peoples!! I hope you all have a fabuloso day stuffed with chips, guac, and strong margaritas. (my D.O.C. used to be a strawberry marg on the rocks with salt when I lived at the beach a few summer’s ago. best.)

I made this spicy little shrimp bowl last night without even recognizing that it was May 5th the next day. So if you’re on the skinny train this week, this recipe is perf to make for your festivities tonight. It’s light, fresh, zesty, sweet, and basically amaze-balls, duh.
