A visit from Baby Chloe – and Asian Shrimp Lettuce Wraps

My sweet little niece (almost 11 months old) stayed with us this weekend so her hardworking parents could get a well deserved and much needed break.  My sister and her husband took their boat out on Saturday and came back with a nice bucket of fresh shrimp.  In exchange for my “babysitting services” I was able to score some shrimp from them – lucky me!
I saw an episode of Bobby Flay’s new show Grill It and it was featuring shrimp.  He made a yummy looking asian marinade that I really wanted to try.  I decided to use it and make some healthy lettuce wraps for dinner.  They turned out really good!  I will definately use this marinade and dressing again for other asian inspired meals.
