Shrimp with Grilled Peach Salsa #fantasticalfoodfight

I love this time of the month when the Fantastical Food Fight bloggers compete with a theme to get the most clicks!  We have such fun and the winner gets bragging rights!  If you are a food blogger, or a blogger who posts recipes, you might want to join us for this fun event. This month the theme is Seafood!  Our family loves seafood, and especially shrimp.

My husband is the grill master in our family, so I asked him to grill me up some shrimp with a light seasoning. He decided he needed to skewer them for easy grilling, and that created the perfect shrimp bed to put my Grilled Peach Salsa on.  The sweetness of the peaches, the char on the shrimp, and the perfect sides made this a crazy good meal. We made it into a surf and turf dish, as we were celebrating Father's Day.

My family loved the salsa and thought of many ways to use it, although we all agreed that it was the perfect amount of flavor for the grilled shrimp.  We plan to make it again, and we hope you give it a try!
