Snackshot of the Day: Plums

Photos of all things food and drink from The Daily Meal

Plums are in season in summer.

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot is of plums. It's not quite plum season yet, but that doesn't mean we can't start dreaming about them. These plums are being used in a recipe for shrimp skewers with peppers and plums on the blog Foodies at Home. The shrimp, jalapenos, and plum skewers are soaked in a marinade of cilantro, lime juice, sesame oil, lime zest, and salt, then grilled.
