Buffalo Shrimp Lettuce Wraps make an easy low carb lunch. They can be made start to finish in under 20 minutes. These salty, spicy lettuce wraps are absolutely delicious.
Only 3 Ingredients Needed For The Shrimp
The shrimp are sauteed and coated in a mixture of butter and buffalo sauce. So easy and tasty.
To finish off this recipe, all you need are Romaine lettuce leaves, blue cheese crumbles, and sliced green onions. If you don’t like blue cheese, you can use feta cheese.
What Type Of Shrimp To Use
I prefer wild-caught over farm-raised shrimp. If you can get local, fresh shrimp they are the best. If you don’t live near the coast, you are best off buying frozen shrimp. They are easy to thaw in a colander under running water.
Buffalo Shrimp Lettuce Wraps Recipe Tips
Be careful not to overcook the shrimp. They cook in just a few minutes. Once they are opaque, they are done. If you overcook them, they will develop a rubbery texture.
I use Frank’s Red Hot Wing Sauce. Be sure to use the wing sauce and not hot sauce.
Romaine lettuce is my go to for this recipe but you can use iceberg lettuce or bibb lettuce.
Leftovers will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days.
