Bang Bang Shrimp Lettuce Wraps

Bang Bang Shrimp Lettuce Wraps

Okay, you guys… this is a recipe that I like to call “stupid easy.” I mean, these Bang Bang Shrimp Lettuce Wraps are probably one of the easiest recipes I’ve put on here and that is saying a lot because I am the queen of easy recipes! On another note, it’s also “stupid good”–the taste is off the hook! 

You MUST put this on your meal plan as soon as possible. It’s the perfect weeknight meal since it only takes like 15-20 minutes to make! I also think these Bang Bang Shrimp Lettuce Wraps would be a fun appetizer to whip up for friends when entertaining.

  1. 1 lb. peeled, deveined and tail-off Shrimp
  2. 1-2 tbsp. cooking oil (I used avocado oil)
  3. salt and pepper, to taste
For the Sauce
  1. 1/2 cup homemade or primal kitchens mayo
  2. 2 cloves garlic, minced
  3. 2 tsp. mina harissa
  4. 1 tsp. fish sauce
  5. 2 tsp. fresh lime juice
  6. salt and pepper, to taste
For serving
  1. 1/4 cup sliced scallions (green part only)
  2. 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves (or cilantro microgreens)
  3. 6-8 butter lettuce leaves
  1. Combine all of the bang bang sauce ingredients in a bowl and set aside until ready to use.
  2. Pat shrimp dry and season all over with salt and pepper, to taste.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Brush oil so that it evenly coats the bottom of the skillet.
  4. Spread shrimp in a single layer across the skillet without overcrowding the pan (I had to do mine in two separate batches). Sear both sides of the shrimp until a light, golden crust forms (about 3-4 minutes per side).
  5. Remove the shrimp from the heat but still keep them in the hot skillet. Spoon desired amount of bang bang sauce into the skillet and toss to coat the shrimp.
  6. Serve in lettuce cups topped with scallions and cilantro.
  7. Enjoy!
