After weekends of overindulging, I find myself craving food that is light and healthy, with fresh flavors. This works well with my schedule because I am also usually looking for something super quick to throw together. These shrimp lettuce wraps are absolutely perfect for both. They take ten minutes start to finish and are so flavorful without being heavy. They are perfect to make with whatever ingredients you have in your fridge! I added avocado and mango salsa to the shrimp, as well as cheese and sour cream after this picture! Whether you are eating clean, low carb-ing, point counting, or just looking for a fresh meal as the weather warms up, these shrimp lettuce wraps are a perfect fit.
