Shrimp Burritos



You can make  burritos with anything but last night I used shrimp.

This took ten minutes.

Two large extra large wraps any flavor.

2 tablespoons oil

1/2 pound medium or even small shrimp

One tablespoon cornstarch

1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper

One large sliced onion

1/2 sliced red pepper

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 sliced avocado

2 diced scallions

6 tablespoons cooked rice

6 tablespoons cooked and drained black beans

1/2 cup grated cheddar

1/2 cup shredded lettuce

6 tablespoons drained salsa

4 teaspoons sour cream

2 teaspoons diced jalapeno pepper

1/4 cup mayo mixed with two teaspoons Sriracha sauce. Add more sauce if you like it spicier.

Coat the shrimp with the cornstarch, salt and pepper.

Just shake it all together in a bag

Heat two tablespoons oil in a frying pan

Shake the excess cornstarch off the shrimp

Place the shrimp in the hot oil and fry till lightly brown on both sides

Drain on a paper towel

Quickly stir fry the garlic, onion and red pepper till still crisp.

Season with salt and pepper

Place the wraps on a board and start layering

First smear the mayo mixture on each wrap

Divide everything above in half and layer on each wrap

Roll up tightly

Cilantro for garnish

Enjoy with more salsa or melted cheese to dip

To decrease calories I have made this is Romaine lettuce leaves and eliminated the wraps

but I did keep the sour cream, mayo and cheese.

There is only so much one can sacrifice…
