We all need more easy lunch ideas. When it comes to making something quick, and delicious, the simpler, the better we say. That was the whole point of combining premium shrimp with gourmet seasonings and sauces in a format that cooks perfectly in any kitchen in 10 minutes or less.
It can get boring to have the same sandwich or meal prep over and over, and easy lunch ideas can be dull and repetitive. But cooking lunch (especially on a work day) shouldn’t require your entire break. Instead, try our recipe for quinoa shrimp lettuce wraps.
These straightforward quinoa shrimp lettuce wraps, which come together by serving freshly cooked Garlic Herb Butter shrimp and quinoa over a few leaves of bibb lettuce, are about as good as it gets.
Quinoa, often touted as a superfood, offers a myriad of health benefits that contribute to overall well-being. Packed with essential nutrients, quinoa is a complete protein source, containing all nine essential amino acids vital for muscle repair and growth. It’s gluten-free grain and rich in fiber, aiding digestion and promoting a healthy gut. Additionally, quinoa is a fantastic source of various minerals like magnesium, iron, zinc, and manganese, essential for bone health, oxygen transportation, and immune function.
Shrimp is another nutritional powerhouse. It is is an excellent source of high-quality protein, it is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, and it promotes heart health by reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases and supporting healthy cholesterol levels. Moreover, it's packed with an impressive array of vitamins and minerals, including selenium, a powerful antioxidant that supports the immune system and thyroid function, and vitamin D, which is essential for bone health and immune system support.
Packed with nutrition and flavor, these wraps are high in quality and convenience to elevate any occasion -- even a last-minute weekday power lunch.
(Pro tip: you can swap out quinoa for literally any grain, including leftovers straight from the fridge or those nifty microwave pouches).
