Sweet and Spicy Shrimp Lettuce Wraps

Ingredients

For the dressing:

Instructions

  1. Make the dressing by whisking the vegetable oil, sesame oil, soy sauce, rice vinegar and sriracha together in a small bowl. Set aside.
  2. Chop the shrimp into 1/2-inch pieces and set aside.
  3. Heat the vegetable and sesame oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ginger and sauté for 1 minute, then add the garlic and continue cooking for 1 minute longer.
  4. Add the soy sauce and honey, combine well, then add the shrimp and sauté for 1 minute. Add the cabbage and continue cooking until the shrimp is opaque and the cabbage is slightly wilted, 1 to 2 minutes longer. Add the carrot and bean sprouts, toss to combine and remove from the heat.
  5. To serve, arrange 2 lettuce leaves on each of 4 plates. Divide the shrimp mixture between them and top each with 2 teaspoons of chopped cashews. Drizzle with a bit of dressing and pass the remainder at the table.

Notes

Be sure to use a lettuce with a delicate leaf, like green leaf or butter lettuce. Crisp varieties like romaine and iceberg tend to snap when rolled.
