Eid special: Tropical Shrimp Skewers

Shrimp skewers as a snack for Eid day or any other occasions. I call them “Tropical Shrimp Skewers”  because they are dressed with bell peppers, onions and tropical pineapples. Incredibly succulent and appetising with every bite. So easy to make with the minimal preparations required for this recipe.

Note: For this recipe, you can also substitute with chicken

Summer Lime Juice

The Summer Limes can also create their ocean in a splendid  glass.

Summer limes are deliciously refreshing and can easily be the snow you’ve dreamt during summer. The recipe is really simple and organic (though I have added some sugar to blend with the bitter taste of the lime).
