I just love these. Don't skip the dipping sauce - it is very good, and goes well with many other dishes.


  • 1 lb. jumbo shrimp, cleaned and deshelled
  • Advertisement

  • flour tortillas
  • red leaf lettuce (whole leaves)
  • fresh cilantro, coarsely chopped
  • fresh mint, coarsely chopped
  • 2 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh ginger, grated or finely minced
  • 3 Tbsp. lemon grass, crushed then minced
  • 2 tsp. lime zest
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 Tbsp. sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. fish sauce
  • 3 - 6 small red chilies, minced
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon grass, crushed and thinly sliced
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced on the bias, green and white parts
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh ginger, grated or finely minced
  • juice of 2 limes


Mix all the ingredients for the marinade and add the shrimp. Marinate for 2 hours. Drain and saute over medium high heat until just done. You can use them hot, warm, or chilled.

Mix all the sauce ingredients and chill.

To assemble: warm the flour tortillas in a slow oven just until soft easy to fold. On each tortilla place lettuce and herbs, then shrimp. Roll each one up. Serve with the dipping sauce and either dip each wrap, or drizzle the sauce on with a spoon.


If you have Thai Basil, it is very good along with the cilantro and mint. The combination of the dark lettuce and the green herbs is very pretty with the shrimp. You can substitute lemon juice and zest for the lemon grass in the marinade, and a couple of tsp of lemon zest for the lemon grass in the sauce. It is easy to customize the heat of the sauce by using different kinds of chilies. I like using red and green.

This is made from scratch and perfect for any get together or party.


  • Pickling Preparation:
    • 4 celery ribs, cut into 3/4 inch pieces
    • 2 bay leaves
    • 4 whole peppercorns
    • 2 tsp. salt
    • 2 lbs. shrimp in shell, unthawed (16 to 20 per lb. size)
    Pickling Ingredients:
    • 2 onions, peeled and thinly sliced
    • Advertisement

    • 16 to 20 bay leaves
    • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
    • 2 Tbsp. cider vinegar
    • 1/2 tsp. salt
    • 1/2 tsp. dry mustard
    • 2 tsp. super fine sugar
    • juice of one lemon
    • 1/4 cup pickling spice


    In a heavy pot with a lid, combine the celery, bay leaves, peppercorns and salt. Add 2 cups water. Bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer 5 minutes. Add the shrimp; re-cover pot and bring back to a boil. Lower heat and simmer 3 minutes or until pink. Remove from heat and uncover. Let shrimp cool in the stock.

    When cool enough to handle peel shrimp, returning to the stock until ready to pickle the shrimp.

    Pickling Instructions:

    In a large bowl, place a layer of boiled shrimp. On top place 4 bay leaves and one fourth of the onion slices. Continue doing this, layer upon layer until all shrimp are used.


    Mix remaining ingredients and pour over the shrimp. Cover bowl and set aside, stirring occasionally.

    After 12 hours, taste shrimp and adjust seasoning. If too tart add more sugar.

    Serve arranged on a serving platter or bowl.

    Here's a great shrimp dish I make quite often. The original recipe came out of an old Weight Watcher cookbook, but as always (something I learned from my Grandma) I usually throw in a few extras to make it taste better and substitute some ingredients, but it's still healthy cooking.

    I've cooked fresh shrimp, chilled them, eliminated the chopped shrimp in the recipe, and used the dip for dipping the shrimp to eat. Very good!

    Shrimp Pasta Sauce

    1 can shrimp bisque
    1 can tomato soup/or 1 soup can of spaghetti sauce
    1 cup canned/ frozen and thawed small shrimp
    old Bay Seafood seasoning or garlic powder
    cooked pasta (linguine works well)

    Cook the pasta. while waiting for the water to boil, mix the sauce.
    Blend the canned soups thoroughly in a bowl.
    Season to taste with your choice of seasoning.(using spaghetti sauce, probably don't need to season)
    Fold in shrimp.
    Heat in saucepan on stove, or in microwave until warm but not boiling.
    Serve sauce over pasta.


    Shrimp Ramen

    3 -4 packages shrimp flavored ramen noodles
    1 can shrimp bisque
    milk to thin soup to consistency you like

    cook packages of noodles in pan on stove with one flavor paket in the water. bring to boil, cover and let sit for 5 minutes. drain if needed.

    Heat the soup with enough milk to thin to a consistency you like, using one or both of the other flavor packets. Warm but do not boil.
    Pour sauce over noodles, and toss to coat well.

    Both pasta meals go well with garlic bread and a salad. Both serve my family of 3 adults, 1 teenager with no leftovers.
