Delicious Greek shrimp recipe - Put inside lettuce wraps or pitas

Greek Shrimp Stuffed Lettuce Wraps or Pitas

Greek Shrimp Lettuce Wrap - YUM!
This a fast, delicious meal, great for weeknights when you want something extra special. Make it
low-carb and grain-free by using lettuce wraps instead of pita bread. Most feta cheese is 100% goat cheese, but check the label if you choose to avoid cow dairy.


GREEK SHRIMP STUFFED WRAPS Recipe:

Yield: 4 to 5

Shrimp Mixture:

1 pound cooked shrimp, peeled and finely chopped
4 ounces crumbled feta cheese
2 to 3 scallions, finely chopped
Fresh ground black pepper, to taste
BioSalt, to taste (recipe on this blog)

Yogurt Sauce:

1 c. plain non-fat yogurt (Greek yogurt makes a thicker sauce)
1/4 c. chopped fresh parsley and/or mint
1 clove garlic
1/2 t. fresh ground pepper
1/4 t. onion salt
BioSalt, to taste
A squeeze of fresh lemon juice, optional



Method:

Put the clove of garlic in a food processor and mince. Scrape down the sides.

Put the rest of the yogurt sauce ingredients in the food processor and process until a sauce is obtained.

Check and adjust the seasoning as needed.

Chill the yogurt sauce at least 1 hour in the refrigerator, before serving.

In a separate bowl, combine the shrimp mixture. Season to taste.

Fill lettuce wraps or pitas with the combined shrimp mixture.

Top with the yogurt sauce and serve immediately.


Note: You may garnish with lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, Greek olives ,as desired.

Tip: If Greek yogurt is used, I prefer to thin the sauce with some lemon juice plus a little water.



Enjoy,
