One of my favorite things to do with romaine lettuce is use it as a lettuce wrap…a healthy transport for scooping a variety of fresh ingredients to my mouth. Not only is it a great substitute when I am out of organic taco shells, but it’s also fresh, crispy and crunchy…and frugal too!! On this particular day last summer I wanted something light and tasty. I had also just received these beautiful ears of organic corn from Annie’s Organic Buying Club.
To make these amazing Mahi Mahi Lettuce Wraps I just whipped up my recipe for Fish Tacos and used a romaine leaf instead of a taco shell. Definitely easy!! Definitely healthy!! One great thing I love about my fish taco recipe is that I use my own taco seasoning mix. No msg or other additives, and another money saver! I usually mix up a double batch so I have some on hand for next time.
You could use any filling for these lettuce wraps….beef or chicken taco fixings, black bean burrito fixings, various sandwich fillings including BLTs and slopping joes. It’s a perfect meal for spring and summer as you begin dreaming of firing up your grill. Do you have a lettuce wrap recipe or other wrap ideas you’d like to share with us? If so, please link it in your comment. I’d love to see all the great ideas out there!
