Shrimp Lettuce Wraps with Peanut Sauce
Hussein loves Asian food. From Thai to Japanese to Vietnamese to American takes on Asian flavors.
I also love Asian Cuisine and don’t cook it often enough. We generally get take out Pho or go out for sushi!
But I need to do a better job of using these flavors (& the personalized chop sticks my friend Rana got us) in my kitchen!
When planning my dinner menu for the week, I try to mix up the proteins and styles of cooking to keep things interesting.
But I also don’t want to spend two hours making dinner. Because in the words of Sweet Brown:
I’ve made lettuce wraps several times at home and learned that butter lettuce make for the best ‘lettuce wrap’ vessel.
And it is such a beautiful lettuce.
This recipe is really simple, as is the peanut sauce to accompany it (the base is peanut butter).
Feel free to add/substitute any of the vegetable toppings and use what you like! Cooking is fun and recipes are simply a guide.. make them your own 🙂
Fun! Thank you for sharing this post!
Thank you, Carrie ☺️
Lettuce wrap is the way to go on a low-carb diet. I love this combination with peanut sauce.

OH.YUM. I love shrimp lettuce wraps (and chicken lettuce wraps, and beef lettuce wraps, etc etc). I cannot wait to make these!!

Yummm these sound so delicious! I love making lettuce wraps and I totally agree with you – butter lettuce is where it’s at! I’ve tried with ice berg before and it just wasn’t the same.
Thank you so much, Ariana! I’ve learned thru trial and error ☺️
