Preheat the grill to medium high. Rub the grill with canola oil to prevent sticking. On a clean work surface, season shrimp with garlic salt, pepper, and paprika. Place seasoned shrimp on preheated and oil grill. Grill 2-3 minutes on each side or until they become coral color and opaque.

In a medium bowl, combine kiwi, green apple, jalapeno, onion, cilantro, and mint to make the relish. Add lime juice, lime zest, honey and salt and pepper to taste. Set aside and allow flavors to come together. To plate, line a plate with sliced kiwi. Add grilled shrimp and top with relish. To garnish, top with sliced radish and jalapeno.
