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.

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 🙂

  1. 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.
