Ingredients

1 pound large shrimp, shelled and deveined

5 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons minced garlic

Pink Himalayan salt 

Freshly ground black pepper

6 ears corn, shucked

Two 14-ounce cans black beans, drained and rinsed

  1. Skewer the shrimp onto metal skewers and place on a baking sheet.

  5. Grill the shrimp until grill marked and pink in the center, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Let cool, and then remove from the skewers and slice in half crosswise. 
  6. Combine the corn kernels, beans, shrimp, cilantro and pink Himalayan salt to taste in a large bowl. Drizzle with the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, the juice of 2 limes, the remaining 1 tablespoon minced garlic and freshly ground pepper to taste. Gently toss to combine. Let chill at least 30 minutes before serving.
