Ingredients

  • 3/4 pound large shrimp, shelled and deveined (medium shrimp is ok too)
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic (or pinch, garlic powder)
  • olive oil (1-2 tsp)
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 Boston/Bibb/Butter lettuce, leaves, separated (iceberg lettuce is ok too)
  • Garnish: lime wedges, chopped cilantro

Mango Slaw

  • 1 small mango, pitted, peeled and diced small (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 avocado, pitted, peeled and diced small (about 1/4 cup)
  • 2 tablespoon green onion, finely chopped (1 green onion)
  • 1 cup broccoli slaw, undressed) (or cabbage slaw) I buy it shredded in package.

Dressing for Mango Slaw

  • 2 tablespoon Spicy Sweet Chili Sauce (I use Thai)
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice (about 1/2 lime)
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 inch ginger, grated (1/2 tsp)
  • 1 teaspoon Fish Sauce (optional)
  • pinch kosher salt

Instructions

  • PREPARE LETTUCE: Lay out lettuce leaves on a tray or individual plates.
  • ROAST SHRIMP: Heat oven to 425F. Toss shrimp with a drizzle of olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper and lay in single layer on pan lined with foil (for easy clean up). Roast shrimp for 6 minutes or just until they lose their translucence. If shrimp are medium, roast for 5 minutes. Note 1. Cut shrimp into chunks. I cut large shrimp into three pieces and medium into two pieces.
  • MAKE MANGO SLAW DRESSING: Combine ingredients in small bowl and mix well.
  • MIX MANGO SLAW WITH SHRIMP: Add mango slaw ingredients and chopped shrimp in a bowl. Pour on dressing and mix to combine.
  • ASSEMBLE AND SERVE: Divide shrimp and mango slaw mixture among 8-10 lettuce leaves. Garnish with a squeeze of lime and chopped cilantro. Serve immediately.

Notes

Make Ahead: Make the shrimp and mango slaw dressing ahead. Leave the slaw (or at least the dicing of the avocado) and filling the lettuce wraps until just before serving.
