We’re excited to share the first featured recipe from our September 2022 Chef of The Month, Chef Yeikel Santos.

Refreshing is an understatement! We couldn’t help but get drooling over these Shrimp Tacos with Cilantro Sauce and Pineapple.

Ingredients for the Cilantro Sauce

  • 1 cup of mayonnaise
  • 3 garlic cloves
