Buffalo Shrimp Lettuce Wraps

We love this as a quick and fun weeknight family meal, but it is versatile to serve a crowd. We love that the shrimp is a nice compliment to the favors of buffalo sauce with crisp butterhead lettuce and carrots. In our household, Momo's Yuzu Jalapeno dressing is the perfect substitution for blue cheese dressing normally served with buffalo wings.
