Shrimp, Turkey and Red Pepper Wraps

I am still fighting off the cold that never ends. Way to ring in 2012! Since the gym is pretty much out right now, I’m trying to make healthier lunch and dinner choices. Tonight inspiration struck (beyond the boring chicken breasts and spinach salads that I’ve been eating many weeknights) and I was so happy with the way this turned out, I thought I’d share the recipe!

So good!

  • 1 sm red onion
  • 1 lg red pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 10 oz ground turkey breast
  • 8 oz cooked shrimp, chopped into small pieces
  • 1 Tb Chinese 5-spice powder
  • 1 Tb reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tsp rice wine vinegar
  • Cabbage or lettuce for wrapping
  • Sesame seeds for topping
  • Cilantro for topping
  • Peanut sauce for dipping
  1. Dice onion and garlic into small pieces and saute in olive oil over medium heat until translucent.
  2. Add diced red pepper until just beginning to soften, then remove vegetables from pan and set aside.
  3. Add turkey breast, Chinese 5-Spice, soy sauce and rice wine vinegar to pan. Saute until turkey is cooked through.
  4. Add vegetables back in to turkey mixture, then add shrimp. Stir to evenly coat vegetables and shrimp with spices.
  5. Cook until shrimp is just heated through; remove pan from heat.
  6. Allow to cool for 5 minutes, then serve in lettuce or cabbage cups.  Wrap then sprinkle with sesame seeds, add chopped cilantro and dip in peanut sauce.
  7. Enjoy!
