I love lettuce wraps, they are my go-to when I want to eat low-carb. In fact, I have so many lettuce wrap recipes here on my site, everything from Buffalo Chicken Lettuce WrapsTaco Lettuce Wraps to BLT Lettuce Wraps just to name a few.

These spicy shrimp lettuce wraps are keto, low-carb and gluten-free. An idea I had after a craving for Buffalo Shrimp. You eat them with your hands, so they’re a bit messy. If you prefer to turn this into a salad, simply serve the shrimp over chopped romaine.

I used butter lettuce for these lettuce wraps, but Romaine or Iceberg lettuce works great too. These are great for lunch or a light dinner, you don’t need any fancy equipment, just a skillet. The best part, this whole shrimp dish takes less than 10 minutes to make.
