Grilled Shrimp Lettuce Wraps Recipe

Here’s a super yummy recipe that is great for an appetizers or a meal. This is another great clean eating recipe. I love the bursts of sweetness that come through from the sweet bell peppers, and the spicy cooling sensation of the sour cream. I used Bibb lettuce in this recipe, mostly because it looks super cute as a holder for it, but I like the slight bitter taste that it has. I don’t know about you, but I can shrimp all day long, unless you’re allergic to shellfish…then I don’t recommend it. I hope you enjoy this recipe, and the other clean eating recipes I’ve been sharing this month with you!
