Lettuce Wraps With Hoisin Glazed Shrimp

Lettuce Wraps With Hoisin Glazed Shrimp
Still going on my easy dinner recipes and these lettuce wraps with hoisin glazed shrimp fit right in.This is actually a glaze that I first put on salmon, and is one of my favorite recipes, so I’ll have to put it  up here soon.  The glaze is sweet and with a hint of heat, a tad of smokiness from the hoisin and a kick of citrus from fresh lime juice.  It has tons of flavors going on and some way they all come together.

You could easily throw this shrimp in a corn tortilla and call it a taco, over some lettuce and make a delicious salad, but I’ve decided to go the lettuce wrap route.  I added some steamed brown rice, some shaved carrot and a sprinkle of green onion.  It’s a bunch of fresh flavors that will fill you up, but won’t make you feel uncomfortably stuffed.

I used about half of the hoisin glaze to coat the shrimp and the other half to use as a dipping sauce or for a little extra glaze on top of the entire wrap.  I mean that glaze plus the brown rice = heaven!
