In line with our peach and lime color palette for the summer Supper Club, this shrimp and fava dish is healthy and hearty. Find favas at your farmers market or nearest Whole Foods - they're darling and add color and a layer of richness to any salad or side. Grilled shrimp add some meat to the menu, though you can keep this dish vegetarian and utilize grilled asparagus or artichoke hearts instead.
