You need to try these low-cal lime shrimp wraps this week

Olivia Hayes

Have you indulged?

Because we certainly have.

Last week was a long week and it’s safe to say we might have eaten a cheeky takeaway (or two) over the weekend. We swore we would be healthy, but sometimes you just have to give in.

We really do try our best but it’s hard to be super healthy all the time. However, with these gorge low calorie shrimp wraps, you won’t have to compromise on flavour.

The recipe is from Delish and we’ve been drooling over it ever since we came across it.


1 lb. medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
2 tsp. ground cumin

Juice of 1 lime

2 tbsp. freshly chopped cilantro, plus more for garnish
cloves garlic, minced
3 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, divided

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

Romaine lettuce, for serving

avocado, thinly sliced

1/4 c. Sour cream, for serving


  1. In a large bowl, stir together shrimp, cumin, lime juice, cilantro, garlic, and 2 tablespoons oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss until combined, then let marinate in the fridge 10 minutes.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat remaining tablespoon oil. Add shrimp and marinade cook until pink, 2 minutes per side.
  3. Assemble wraps: Add shrimp and avocado to lettuce, drizzle with sour cream, and garnish with cilantro.
