This is a fun twist on lettuce wraps that will impress your family for sure! These Shrimp and Lentil Lettuce Wraps could easily be a weeknight meal.
I just love restaurant-quality meals that are simple enough to make at home, and this one is no exception! This is a fun twist on lettuce wraps that will impress your family (and company) for sure! Plus, since lentils are one of the fastest cooking pulses (see below) and it takes just minutes to cook shrimp, this could easily be a weeknight meal.

These were awesome! I drizzled a little of the sauce form your Asian salmon fish cakes on top. It was a success with everyone, even our 3 year old :)
Looks so delicious! My kids will surely love this! I’ll give this a shot! :) Thanks for sharing!
I added a whole grated carrot to the onion and of course garlic. We garnished with chopped peanuts and sriracha! :) fantastic recipe – fun info on pulses.
(And we bought too small a head of Bibb — needed bigger for sure. Thinly sliced radishes will provide a zippy little crunch next time too.)
I love this recipe which I plan to serve with sushi white rice.
Lisa, I used your challenge again in my First Year Seminar classroom and as usual, the students who took the challenge said they had no idea that processed food had so many chemicals. They also found it hard to do the challenge, but once they learned how, they became converts. Yaaay Lisa!!
By the way, Daniel ate pulse in the old testament and swore he could be just as healthy on his pulse and water diet as the king’s royal cabinet on their rich diet of idol worship meat, but that he was not offending God as they were. So pulse is as old as the Old Testament. Thought you might like to know this. lol
This looks good, but I can’t eat shrimp, so I think I’ll sub some pre-cooked chicken. :)
Lisa, this one looks great! I think everyone in my family will enjoy it. Thanks so much for sharing.
Would you want to serve this with something else? I portion seems small for my husband for dinner.
Am I the only one who thinks so?
Hi there. You can always scale up for larger portion sizes and add whatever sides you wish. :)
Definitely going to try this one very soon! I love lettuce wraps just never thought to use lentils & shrimp. Thank you for this recipe.
