What Lettuce do you use for wraps?

For this Easy Hawaiian Shrimp Lettuce Wraps recipe, I used Butter lettuce. But there is a variety you can choose from. Here are a few lettuces: Iceberg, Boston, green leaf, and butter lettuce. Also, these 4 types are used quite often and most people favor iceberg and butter lettuce.

If you are making Asian wraps, I would recommend you use iceberg instead of the other types of lettuce because it is more crispy. But regardless of what you choose though it will come down to what you like best. The only thing that some people don’t like iceberg lettuce is because it is harder to roll and they prefer using Butter lettuce instead.

what shrimp to use for these easy lettuce wraps?

Extra-large or jumbo shrimp work great because they’re juicy and meaty. You can look at the count number on the bag, a 16-20 count is good. Buy shrimp already deveined, shelled and cleaned and cooked, so prep will be quick, no cooking needed!
