Cilantro Lime Shrimp Lettuce Wraps

BRAD HOLLAND

“Cilantro lime” is a flavor profile we never get over: It’s got a kick from cumin, the tang from lime juice, and fresh zing from cilantro. You can let this shrimp recipe marinate for about 20 minutes to let the flavors meld — or don’t; they’ll be great without sitting, too. Load them up with whatever toppings you want: avocado, tomatoes, sour cream, whatever sounds delish.
