Shrimp Lettuce Wraps make a delicious, nutritious meal in minutes. Made of shrimp, garlic, and peppers, these shrimp lettuce wraps have a spicy flair!

As the weather is getting warmer here in the South, I’m looking for more and more quick and easy dishes I can have on the table in minutes. These spicy shrimp lettuce wraps are definitely one of my favorites for a filling lunch or dinner.

Within just a few minutes, I have the ingredients on a baking sheet and in the oven filling my kitchen with a spicy, delicious smell. My recipe includes time for preparing the shrimp prior to baking them. As a shortcut, I often buy shrimp that has already been peeled and de-veined for me which even further reduces the preparation time for this recipe. Because we all know that sometimes, I need all the help I can muster to get a quick meal on the table.


Here’s how I make my Spicy Shrimp Lettuce Wraps.

  2. Whenever I make lettuce wraps, my family gobbles them up like crazy. There’s something very fun about it. I love shrimp – yours look wonderful!
