I was looking on the Food Network sight for quick dinner ideas in this heat. I work 10 hour days and I like quick recipes for supper. I changed a few ingredients to be BD friendly.

  • 3 tbs. lime juice, pure, organic
  • 3 tbs. coconut oil, raw, extra-virgin, organic
  • 2 tbs. soy sauce, wheat-free, organic
  • 2 tsp. ginger, fresh, organic
  • 1 clove garlic, fresh, organic
  • 1 lbs. shrimp, fresh, wild-caught

In a medium bowl, combine the lime juice, 2 tablespoons coconut oil, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, ginger, and garlic. Add the shrimp and let marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
In a medium skillet, heat the remaining oil over medium-high heat.Add the bell pepper, green onions, and the water chestnuts, and cook, stirring constantly, for 3 minutes. Add the shrimp and the marinade, and cook until the shrimp are pink, about 3 minutes.Stir in the remaining soy sauce. Divide the lettuce into leaves. Spoon about one quarter cup of the mixture down the center of 1 lettuce leaf. Fold the bottom edge and sides up and over the filling. Repeat with the remaining lettuce leaves and shrimp filling.
