Get ready to taste summer! Paleo Blackened Shrimp Lettuce Wraps with Mango Salsa make it easy.
I have been wishing for summer since last summer.
All winter long, I missed summer weather, summer activities, and most important, summer food. As per usual, the windows never even went on my Jeep.
I feel like putting them on would be inviting winter to stick around a little longer. Okay, so maybe I had to wear 8 layers of clothing a couple days, but it’s okay because it’s finally almost summer!
I swear, the day the weather finally turned warm, my mood went from a winter “meh” to a summer “yay”.
These Paleo Blackened Shrimp Lettuce Wraps with Mango Salsa taste just like summer. And they are so easy!
The homemade mango salsa is just fresh mango (make sure it’s pretty ripe), jalapeño, red onion, cilantro, and lime juice. You just toss all of it together and it’s done.
I know the list of spices and herbs for the blackened seasoning is long but I bet almost every home cook has all of them already in their spice cabinet.
The shrimp gets tossed in the seasoning and sauteed quickly in a little avocado oil. The shrimp takes just 2 minutes per side so you can definitely put this together on a weeknight.
Especially if you made the salsa ahead of time.
I like my blackened shrimp pretty spicy but you can definitely use less cayenne if you need less heat. The crisp lettuce leaves and sweet mango really balances out all the heat.
If lettuce wraps aren’t really your thing but you are still trying to eat paleo, I have a Chipotle Shrimp Jicama Taco recipe that you have to try!
Using thinly sliced jicama as taco shells is a game changer.
