This recipe is similar to a quinoa cake and is conveniently divided into individual portions. It's a healthy alternative to a shrimp cake recipe, featuring sweet mango habanero sauce and shrimp prepared with a Mexican twist. A great healthy meal idea for the whole family, it also makes perfect leftovers to bring for lunch.

Spoon 3 tablespoons LA VICTORIA® Mango Habanero Salsa on top of shrimp and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon freshly chopped cilantro. Drizzle pile with 1 teaspoon olive oil and season generously with salt and pepper. Fold foil packets to seal completely, place packets on baking sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until packets are puffed. To serve, carefully cut foil packets open. Serve with lime wedges.
