Cajun Shrimp Lettuce Wraps

Simple and delicious Cajun Shrimp Lettuce Wraps #Recipe

Summer time is coming, meaning that lighter meals will be more popular. It is getting already humid over here in the music city, and "me don't likey". 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. Anyhow, I'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, or like this.
I hope you like this recipe, and if you make it, please tag me #sandraseasycooking so I can check out your delicious creations!!!

  • 1 tablespoon Lime juice
  • Cajun Seasoning to taste
  • 1 tablespoon Olive oil
  • Lettuce
  • Sesame seeds
  • Dry parsley
  • Green onions
  • Fresh Parsley
Homemade Cajun Seasoning
1 teaspoon Sea Salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon dried oregano
2 teaspoons paprika
½ teaspoon cayenne pepper

  1. Wash, peel and devein shrimp.
  2. Add about 1 tablespoon of lime juice (you may sub it with lemon juice), then season it with Cajun Seasoning. 
  3. Heat the skillet with 1 tablespoon of oil, and carefully add shrimps. 
  4. Cook between 3-4 minutes, remove from the skillet and set on the kitchen paper towel.
  5. Serve it in a lettuce, and garnish it with sesame seeds, dry parsley, green onions and perhaps fresh parsley. 

You may use chicken strips if you cannot eat shrimps. Equally delicious, but it takes just a bit more time to cook.
You may use Store-bought Cajun seasoning.
