How to make it

  • Make sauce first.
  • In a blender, cmbine chilis, lemon juice, cilantro, parsley and garlic.
  • Puree until smooth, adding oil and blend til well combined.
  • Toss the shrimp with half the sauce and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
  • In a large skillet, heat an additional 2 tbsp of olive oil.
  • Flash fry the shrimp over medium heat and cook two minutes per side.
  • Transfer to plate and sprinkle with sea salt.
  • Squeeze lime quarters over the shrimp.
  • Spread remaining piri piri sauce over each lettuce leaf, place a shrimp in the leaf and roll up.
  • Serve immediately.
  • Have used the sauce and done this with a small strip steak sliced in strips and had a seared rare spicy garlic beef wrap in the soft lettuce. It is equally as good. Quite fine for a low carber, too.

    Another great sounding recipes, notcho - you're on a roll today, I see! I love little "bites" I can roll up in crisp lettuce leaves and these marinated shrimp sound like the perfect match for it - something a little "cool" to calm down the heat. A "must try"!!
