Spicy Shrimp and Avocado Wraps

Can you say yummy and spicy!  That’s what these shrimp wraps are.  I found the recipe on Pinterest and with some adaptation…absolutely LOVE them!  So fresh and tangy…they tantalize your taste buds.  Summer’s here…so let’s enjoy!


Here are the easy directions…

* 1 pound extra-large or large shrimp, peeled and deveined
* 1 container hydroponic lettuce (or your choice of crisp lettuce – rinsed and leaves separated)
* 1 jalapeno peppers
* 3 cloves garlic, minced
* 1 Tbs. cumin
* 1 Tbs. coriander
* 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
* 4 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil, plus 1 Tbs.
* 1 tsp coarse salt
* 1 tsp freshly ground pepper
* 1 red bell pepper, diced
* 1 avocado, diced
* 1 lime

Preheat oven to 400.

Roast jalapeno pepper for 20 minutes on cookie sheet

When cool enough…chop roughly

In bowl combine cumin, coriander, the minced garlic and a pinch of salt.  Grind on edge of bowl with spoon.  Add the pepper, cilantro and olive oil and grind more.

Toss the marinade with the shrimp and let sit a few minutes.

Heat skillet over medium-high. Arrange the shrimp in a single layer and sear 2 minutes. Flip and sear 30 more seconds. Remove from pan and set aside.

Add a little more oil if needed and add the red bell pepper. Saute 2 minutes.

Stuff each lettuce cup with shrimp, red bell pepper and diced avocado. Squeeze lime on top and enjoy!!
