It all started with a Saturday morning trip to our local farmers market. Right before my eyes were these gorgeous baby romaine lettuce hearts. They were too pretty to just walk by, I just had to bring them home with us. I had no idea what I would make. With bags full of bread, feta cheese,  fruits and veggies, we walked by our favorite seafood market and the sign for Fresh Florida Gulf Shrimp caught our attention.

We were destined to have  romaine and shrimp for dinner, but with my boys, salad just isn’t enough. I spent the afternoon planning and testing recipes in the kitchen and came up with Angel Hair Shrimp Lettuce Wraps.  The entire family loved them and the best part about it – they were so easy to prepare and you can add any toppings you like.

I could totally see these Angel Hair Shrimp Lettuce Wraps at a special occasion like a baby shower or graduation party.

Isabel, I have never heard of mini lettuce hearts. What a great way to use them (veggie wraps are just the best!). I have just posted my photo back on my blog after our guests left. My daughter and my husband know about photographing for food blogs, but I didn’t want to freak out the other guests with my camera in their faces at the table. Thank you for letting me be part of Sunday Supper!

I think I have to start shopping with you. I KNOW my family would LOVE for me to come back saying, I saw ‘x’ and decided that I had to make something with it…other than a dessert!

These lettuce wraps look divine and I can’t wait to give them a try.
