Thai shrimp lettuche wraps are just the dish to make when the summer heats gets to be too much and you need a quick and refreshing dish. Since the only thing you'll need to cook is the shrimp, you'll have plenty of time away from the heat.
Making these Thai shrimp lettuce wraps is easy and fun for kids to help, especially if you have a young chef in the family. Simply sautee the shrimp in sesame oil, along with the garlic and spices. Be sure to deglaze the pan with some fresh lime juice then allow the shrimp to cool.
Now the kids can help you arrange the shrimp on the lettuce leaves. Garnish with a little fresh coriander and you're all set for a great summer appetizer.
