    We are all busy. I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels like I don’t have time to breath starting from the week before Thanksgiving until after New Year’s Day.

    Then January comes around and I am working on my New Year’s Resolution, which will undoubtedly be to “make healthier choices,” followed by spring, summer and fall which will come with their own challenges and goals around time management and making healthy choices.

    I am always on the lookout for healthy recipes that have loads of flavor. Soy Lime Shrimp is one of those.

    The first thing to know is that soy sauces are not created equal. For dipping sushi or as a flavorful condiment, a dark soy sauce is best. I even like mushroom flavored.

    But for marinades like this, I prefer a low sodium soy sauce. Still lots of robust overtones, but not so overpowering that you can taste the other flavors like lime.

    Shrimp are great for a quick meal. They marinate quickly, soaking up delicious flavor. And they cook fast. Whether you plan to use them to top your salad, serve as a side dish with your favorite Japanese dish or pop them on your own as a snack or appetizer.
