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!
Grilled Shrimp Lettuce Wraps Recipe
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
24 Peeled Jumbo Shrimp
1 Small head of Bibb Lettuce
1/2 Cup of All Natural Sour Cream
A pinch of Cayenne Pepper (or Asian 5 spice)
a pinch of White Pepper
2 Sweet Bell peppers (I used different colors for beauty)
To Prep ahead of time, cut, clean, and dice sweet bell peppers. You want tiny minced pieces.
In a small bowl, mix sour cream, cayenne pepper, white pepper, and half of the diced peppers. Place in the fridge to keep chilled.
Separate and wash your Bibb lettuce leaves, and place on napkin to dry.
Cook your shrimp on the grill (or sear in a pan) until cooked.
Allow shrimp to cool off before assembling the wraps.
I love creating fun, easy, and delicious recipes for everyone in the family to enjoy and make. With my family of 9 (11 if you count my two pups!), I have to make meals for all different tastes and in a short amount of time. When I'm not busy cooking, I'm taking care of my special needs sister, Angela..which you can read all about our journey!
