1 pound of shrimp, peeled and deveined

1 tablespoon grass fed butter

For the Lime Cilantro Slaw

5 ounces cabbage/veggie slaw mix

1/3 cup sour cream

1/4 cup heavy cream

1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

1 tablespoon jalapeño pepper- seeded, rib removed and minced

1 teaspoon scallions (green parts), sliced

Juice of 2 limes

Zest of 1 1/2 limes

Salt and pepper to taste

For the Bang Bang Sauce:

1/4 cup mayonnaise

2 tablespoons Sambal, garlic

2 teaspoon Sriracha

1 teaspoon swerve, confectioners

Preparation

For the Shrimp

Add the smoked paprika, cumin, garlic salt, pepper, lime zest and olive oil to a ziplock bag.

Add in the shrimp, seal up the bag and toss the shrimp to make sure it’s completely coated.

Refrigerate while you make the sauce and slaw.

To Make the Bang Bang Sauce

Add all the sauce ingredients to a bowl and mix.

Set aside at room temperature to allow the flavors to develop, while you make the slaw.

To Make the Lime Cilantro Slaw

Add all the slaw ingredients, except for the slaw, to a large bowl.

Mix until well combined.

Add in the slaw and toss to coat.  Allow to sit at room temperature while you make the shrimp.

To Assemble the Lettuce Wraps

Heat a skillet to medium heat and add in the butter.  Cook the shrimp for a few minutes on each side, careful not to overcook them.

Add some of the slaw to each piece of lettuce.  Add a few shrimp and avocado cubes over the slaw, then top with a healthy drizzle of the bang bang sauce.  Garnish with fresh cilantro and a wedge of lime.

This is the lettuce that I used, but you can certainly use your favorite lettuce.

Note: If you don’t like shrimp, you can certainly make this same recipe with salmon, or the fish of your choice.  Just be sure to adjust the cooking time and macros accordingly.
