Shrimp Lettuce Wraps

Last week, I wanted to make a healthy dinner so I turned to my friend the shrimp for help :) I diced pre-cooked shrimp with cilantro, red onion, red pepper, water chestnuts and a tangy orange dressing. I created this recipe from scratch and was thrilled with the results. The colors are beautiful, ingredients fresh and the taste is finger licking good. If you are looking for a healthy, light meal this one if for you! 

Shrimp Lettuce Wraps 

4 tbsp soy sauce
1 cup orange juice
2 tbsp sugar 
1 package, pre-cooked shrimp, chopped 
1 can sliced water chestnuts, chopped 
1/2 cup diced red onion 
1/2 cup diced red pepper 
1/4 cup chopped cilantro 
1/4 cup seasoned rice vinegar
Juice of one lime
1 bag large romaine leaves 

In small sauce pan, add OJ, sugar and 2 tbsp soy sauce. Bring to boil, then reduce heat and simmer 8-10 minutes until sauce has thickened. Pour in bowl and chill in refrigerator. In a large bowl, mix together chopped shrimp, cilantro, onion, pepper and water chestnuts. Pour in rice vinegar, lime, soy sauce and blend well. Add cooled orange reduction to mixture. Serve over romaine leaves with a slice of lime.
