Ever wondered why we pair citrus fruits with seafood? Was it simply because lemon and fish tasted good or was there a deeper reason? Originally it was a safety precaution, believing that a mouthful of lemon juice would dissolve any bones that were accidentally swallowed. While lemon juice does help dissolve fish bones, we mostly kept with it because the flavors are a delight with the sweet acidic flavor balancing out the briny flavor of seafood.

While lemon and lime are the most popular citrus pairings, you can play around here and really get some interesting flavors. You could try grapefruit, and get a nice sour and tangy taste but with that subtle sweetness that would play nicely with the shrimp. Maybe even an orange, especially a blood orange, that would deliver some boldness without being overpowering. Get creative because this Zesty Lime Cilantro Shrimp and Black Bean Salad will surely satisfy.
