A delicious and healthy shrimp wrap that’s perfect for lunch or dinner. 

  • Author: Melissa
  • Yield: 4 1x
Scale

Ingredients

  • 3 Tbsp. of lemon juice
  • 4 Tbsp. of olive oil, divided
  • 1&1/2 tsp. of Zatarain’s Blackened Seasoning
  • 1/8 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 3 Tbsp. of sour cream
  • 1 lb. of uncooked, but deveined, and peeled shrimp – with tails removed
  • Boston, or Bibb Lettuce
  • Tortilla Shells – toasted
  • 1 Medium cucumber, peeled, and cut into quarters
  • 1 small red onion sliced thin
  • 1/4 cup of fresh cilantro leaves

Instructions

  1. In a medium-sized bowl, toss the shrimp in 1 tsp. of the blackened seasoning. Set aside
  2. Whisk the dressing ingredients: lemon juice, only 3 out of the 4 Tbsp. of olive oil, seasonings, and sour cream – set aside
  3. In a large skillet, add the rest of the olive oil, and set the burner on med/high heat
  4. Place the shrimp in the skillet, and stir them while they cook – about 3-5 minutes. They should turn pink
  5. Prepare the tortilla shells by spreading a large spoonful of sauce down the center, add toppings (lettuce, cucumber, red onion, and cilantro, and shrimp)
  6. Serve with leftover dressing

Notes

You can also serve in Naan bread (Flatbread). I like the tortilla shell better because the Naan bread tends to break open when folded.

    These look good. However the picture on Pinterest ‘s website
    shows the recipe in a naan bread wrap instead of a tortilla that you show here on your website. Why is this? I still plan on writing this recipe down but with a few modifications to suit my tastes. I cannot have spicy foods , I just don’t like them. I go for milder spiced foods.

    • You are right. The original recipe was made with Naan bread. In the notes section of the recipe, I mention that you can use Naan bread or tortilla shells. When I went to update the recipe, I found that the Naan bread can be a bit frustrating as it breaks apart when you try folding it. The last thing I want to do is suggest a recipe with bread that breaks apart. Either way tastes great, I just like the flexibility of the tortilla shell so much better for wraps.
