I made these the other night and was quite tickled with myself. They taste fresh like summer :)


  • Red leaf lettuce (1 leaf makes 1 wrap)
  • 1 cup Shredded carrots
  • 1 ripe mango
  • Bean sprouts
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • 1/4 pound shrimp, cooked & deveined with tails removed (I cooked mine in a little butter and sweet curry powder from Penzey Spices)
  • For dipping sauce mix to your liking: soy sauce (I use Bragg's liquid aminos), lemon juice, a little sugar or honey. Wisk well.


One lettuce leaf = 1 "taco." On lettuce place:
2 basil leaves
A few pinches of shredded carrots
A few pinches of sprouts
2 slices of mango
2 pieces of shrimp
A spoonful of the dipping sauce
Wrap up and enjoy


  1. I love love love fresh mango. Lettuce wraps or "tacos" would be a great thing to bring in my school lunches - good idea!

  2. Yummy! These look like they could be in a food magazine. Side note: surprised Matt went for these :)
