  • 1 1/2 tsp sriracha
  • 16 large shrimps

Avocado cabbage slaw

  • 1 Avocado cubed
  • 1/2 red onion finely chopped
  • 1/3 red cabbage thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • iceberg lettuce leaves To serve

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, mix lime juice, cornstarch and sriracha. Pour the mixture in a pan and place the pan over medium heat until the mixture is warm and starts simmering.
  • Add in jumbo shrimps and cook for 5-8 minutes until fully cooked. Stir constantly so all the shrimps are covers with the sauce.
  • Make the avocado cabbage slaw by mixing cubed avocado, chopped onion, sliced red cabbage, lemon juice and salt in a bowl.
  • Make lettuce wrap by placing cooked shrimp in the lettuce and top with the slaw. Serve immediately.

Notes

  • Make sure to use raw shrimp for this recipe and cook it in the sriracha lime sauce. If using frozen cooked shrimp, the shrimp will become rubbery after it's cooked. 
  • You can use romaine, butter or iceberg lettuce for this recipe. 
  • This recipe is best served fresh.
