Bang Bang Shrimp Lettuce Wraps (Healthy Version)

Super Bowl is on its way and some of us are trying to do 
the healthy new year.
I know I am.
I've seen this recipe time and time again on 
the internet and I have eaten it at 
Bone Fish Grill.
It's fried and it is O so delicious, 
how ever it is way loaded with calories.
Let me just say this version I came up 
with will make you forget all about the frying.
I promise.
This was the first time I have ever made lettuce wraps.
We now have a new easy go to dish in our house.
It is the simplest quickest dinner to make.
I think it took less that 20 minutes.
How can you beat that?
Happy Monday!
