Easy and Healthy Shrimp Wraps

on October 31, 2012

Since this is the first healthy recipe I’ll be posting for this wellness blog, I think it’s only right that I should post a body fat loss appetizer recipe. These shrimp wraps are easy and quick to make. You could eat them when you encounter hunger pangs or when you have guests over! Personal trainer Chris Heron from Shaping Change North London shared this on his web blog and I think it’s a gem of a weight loss recipe. Tried it myself and it was yuuuuummmmmyy!

Healthy shrimp wraps

Easy and yummy!

Ingredients:

– Romaine lettuce leaves (rinsed and drained)
– Raw shrimp
– Garlic (chopped)
– Grated carrot
– Almonds (sliced, toasted or raw)
– Lemon juice
– Olive oil / coconut or ghee butter
– Sea salt & pepper

1. Dice the raw shrimp and then toss with chopped garlic, salt and pepper, half a teaspoon of oil and lemon juice, let marinate for about 15 minutes.

2. Grate the carrot and get the lettuce ready by putting a handful of the carrot into each leaf of lettuce.

3. Heat a pan on high until it’s hot enough for water to sizzle. Then sauté the shrimp. The key here is to NOT overcook the shrimp. It needs only 2-3 minutes. As soon as it’s all pink, take it out and put it in a clean bowl. If you overcook shrimp, it becomes rubbery and tough.

4. Then spoon the cooked shrimp on top of the carrots and sprinkle with a little more salt and pepper.

5. Squeeze lemon on each wrap to taste and cover the shrimp with a generous sprinkle of almonds and serve.
