Jim's Tempura Lettuce Wraps
Romaine lettuce, trimmed
Trader Joe's frozen shrimp tempura
Mayonnaise, mixed with a little salsa juice
Peach mango salsa (Costco) or any salsa
Mexican-mix cheese, grated
Heat the tempura according to package directions. Use medium-size romaine leaves and trim the romaine so it is a little longer than the shrimp. To assemble, on top of the romaine, spread some of the mayonnaise mixture, add some salsa, place shrimp on top, sprinkle with the cheese.
You can substitute the tempura with firm blackened fish, scallops, fried calamari or other seafood. For a lower fat version, I subsituted the mayonnaise with non-fat plain yogurt and light sour cream (half of each) mixed with salsa juice.
