Lettuce wraps are great for a healthier or lighter meal. They're easy to make, fun because everyone can make their own, and leave you feeling less guilt than other alternatives. I also particularly like them because you can match just about any meat or sauce in a lettuce wrap that wouldn't always taste good in a taco shell / bread bun / pasta / etc...
I made the shrimp tempura shrimp and then tossed in the sauce for the above meal, which was delicious, but you could easily just saute fresh shrimp in the kung pao sauce for an even healthier alternative to this meal. The below recipe is for about 1 pound of shrimp which will make lettuce wraps for 2-3 people. This recipe is easy to double or play with the quantity for a larger group! Also as you see pictured above, I served these with a few pot stickers as a side which was a great combo!
