If you’re ready to make this shrimp wrap recipe, let’s make sure you have everything you’ll need: 

Indgredients 

  • shrimp – you’ll want to get deveined shrimp without the tail and uncooked 
  • blackened seasoning – this will be seasoning for the shrimp and for the sauce. It ads a wonderful cajun flavor 
  • lemon juice – use this as an acid in place of vinegar for your dressing. It also provides great flavor 
  • olive oil – olive oil is used to mix with the lemon juice, seasonigs, and sour cream 
  • black pepper – another level of seasoning for the dressing 
  • sour cream – this is what will provide your creamy texture and another delicious flavor to the dressing 
  • lettuce – use a lightweigt lettuce like Boston or Bibb lettuce 
  • red onion – these will be cut up into slices and used to construct your shrimp wrap 
  • cilantro – I know that this is not a favorite flavor to some people. I love the flavor cilantro adds, but feel free to substitute parsley or omit it alltogether 
  • cucumber – sliced an cubed 
  • tortilla shells – these should be toasted. You can use tongs to toast them over an open flame on your stovetop, or toast them in a skillet

Ingredients
  

  • 3 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 4 Tbsp. olive oil divided
  • 1&1/2 tsp. Zatarain's Blackened Seasoning
  • tsp. ground black pepper
  • 3 Tbsp. sour cream
  • 1 lb. shrimp uncooked but deveined, and peeled shrimp – with tails removed
  • Boston lettuce or Bibb Lettuce
  • Tortilla Shells toasted
  • 1 medium cucumber peeled, and cut into quarters
  • 1 small small red onion sliced thin
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro leaves

Instructions
 

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