Give these shrimp and mango lettuce boats a try, they are SO delicious and ridiculously easy to make.
This tasty meal is full of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, protein, healthy fats, and detoxifying properties. Cilantro binds to and removes heavy metals from the body, while apple cider vinegar helps with digestion and aids in weight loss. Add in garlic & ginger for immune boosting, you have a powerhouse meal. 🙂
You can sub out shrimp and use another protein like chicken, or tempeh for a vegetarian option.
- 6-8 large lettuce leaves
- 30 prawns (peeled)
- 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
- 1 mango, cut into small cubes
- 1/4 cup slivered almonds
- 2 cups broccoli slaw
- 1 avocado, cut into small cubes
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed
- 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1 inch cube of fresh ginger, grated
- 1 tsp raw honey
- 2 tbsp olive oil
Whisk together all ingredients for sauce & set aside. Rinse & dry off lettuce leaves, then set aside. Saute the shrimp in coconut oil with 1 clove of garlic until fully cooked. Remove from heat and place in a large bowl. Saute broccoli slaw for 2-3 minutes until just slightly soft. Add broccoli slaw to the shrimp, and add all other ingredients tossing with a large spoon to mix. Add sauce, and spoon mixture onto lettuce leaves. Enjoy!
