Grilled Seafood Lettuce Wraps in Under 20 Minutes


I love making lettuce wraps so I like to be creative with new variations. This is a quick, great, healthy way to change up the way you eat seafood by serving it in a lettuce wrap. Feel free to add any of your favorite toppings or substitute your favorite fish or even use shrimp or scallops. Use a grill pan or skillet if you don’t want, or have time, to fire up the grill. These make great appetizers or a light summer dinner.
