Lemongrass Shrimp Lettuce Wraps

Shrimp

  • 1 lb. medium shrimp (approximately 24, peeled and deveined)
  • 1 Tbsp. fish sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. lemongrass paste
  • 2 Tbsp. light brown sugar
  • 2 large garlic cloves (minced)

Lettuce cups

  • 2 oz. rice vermicelli noodles
  • 1 cup bean sprouts
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 medium cucumber (peeled and julienned)
  • 12 large Thai basil leaves
  • Mint (chopped)
  • Cilantro (chopped)
  • 1/4 cup crushed peanuts
  • 1 head butter lettuce

Nuoc Cham (dipping sauce)

  • 6 Tbsp. water
  • 2 Tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 1.5 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp. fish sauce
  • 1 garlic clove (minced)
  1. To make nuoc cham dipping sauce, combine 3 Tbsp. warm water and sugar in small bowl. Stir until sugar dissolves. Add additional 3 Tbsp. room temperature water, lime juice, fish sauce and garlic. Stir and set aside.
  2. In medium bowl, add shrimp, fish sauce, lemongrass paste, brown sugar and garlic cloves. Mix to coat the shrimp and set aside to marinate 10 minutes.
  3. While the shrimp marinates, cook rice vermicelli noodles according to package directions. Strain and rinse with cold water. Set aside to cool.
  4. In non-stick grill pan over medium high heat, cook shrimp 2 to 3 minutes per side or until pink and opaque. (Note: If cooking on stainless steel, add oil to pan.)
  5. To assemble, arrange lettuce leaves on plates. Layer each with 1-1.5 Tbsp. rice vermicelli noodles. Divide bean sprouts, shredded carrots and cucumber among lettuce cups. After noodle and veggie layers, place one Thai basil leaf atop each lettuce cup.
  6. Add 2 shrimp per lettuce cup and garnish with mint, cilantro and peanuts.
  7. Serve with nuoc cham dipping sauce separately or drizzled atop the lettuce cups.
