Buffalo Shrimp Lettuce Wraps

I LOVE buffalo everything and these Buffalo Shrimp Lettuce Wraps are no exception. I made these as a lunch prep and ate them as lettuce wraps one day and then over salad for a few days after that. So quick to throw together and so delicious!

Place raw shrimp in a medium bowl and sprinkle with paprika, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper and toss well to evenly coat.

Melt 1 tbsp ghee or other preferred cooking fat in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add shrimp in a single layer and cook, undisturbed, for 4 minutes, flip and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes.

Turn the heat to medium-low and add your buffalo sauce, stirring well to evenly coat all of the shrimp. Remove from pan and place in butter lettuce or on top of spring mix. Top with desired toppings and enjoy!!
