Cajun Shrimp Lettuce Wraps

Cajun Shrimp LEttuce Wraps

Summer is coming, meaning that lighter meals will be more popular. It is getting already humid over here in the music city, and “I don’t like.“I like Spring, and Fall time and humidity is something that I cannot handle, period. Now, if I had a nice beach next to my house instead of community pool that is so crowded over summer my story would be more positive. 

I am a swimmer, have been my whole life, literally so having that pool is like nothing to me if I can’t relax, swim or play with my kids. AnyhowI‘ve been trying to eat less meat and include more fresh veggies on our weekly menu. It is working wonderfully. We are all more energetic.

Anyhow, we love shrimps. I don’t make them too often, but a couple of times a month with our pasta, zoodles (zucchini noodles), in sandwiches or taking a healthier road and making them like this. Don’t you just love easy, healthy and fuzz-free meal? You can make them for parties, appetizer or as a salad topper… I mean possibilities are endless! 
I hope you like this recipe, and if you make it, please tag me #sandraseasycooking so I can check out your delicious creations!
