Fresh, easy and healthy!
These 10 minute lettuce wraps are so quick to make!

Boston lettuce works best for lettuce wraps. I used green leaf lettuce which fell apart! But it still turned into a tasty salad in the end!

Add your favorite veggies and dressing, wrap them up, and voila!

A quick go-to dinner or appetizer!

My boyfriend is Portuguese, and the dinners at his families house are always so delicious. One Portuguese dish that is served, and my favorite is called Shrimp Mozambique.

I couldn’t find all of the ingredients I needed in the store, but for what should be in your cupboards, here is my recipe!

For 2 servings:

•Thaw 20 large peeled shrimp overnight
•Heat pan on medium heat
•Melt 1/2 stick of butter
•Dice up a tsp of garlic and simmer
•Add 2 tbsp of lemon juice or squeeze 2 fresh lemons into pan
•Shake some hot sauce in, about 4 tbsp
•Add 1 cup of water
•Add 1/2 tbsp of vegetable broth
•Bring to a boil
•Rinse shrimp, add to pan and cook for 3-4 minutes on med-low heat

Serve with fresh corn (boil corn in a pot for 5 minutes) and dip some pada (bread) in the yummy sauce

Cheers!

I’ve had this craving for Shake N’ Bake for months now.  But ever since I became a Vegetarian I haven’t had it!

So I thought I would pick up a package of the mix and add a yellow eggplant twist!

image

• I chopped up half a large yellow eggplant from the local market into medallion’s
•Heated my oven to 350°F
•Washed the eggplant medallion’s
•Shook them up in the bag provided with the mix until evenly coated
•Baked for 20 minutes and turned at 10 minutes

They were quite delicious!

Enjoy!
