Chipotle Pineapple Shrimp Lettuce Cups

This dish right here is summer in a bowl! I know its already Fall but today I conjured up this dish because I wanted a meal that packs a lot of flavor, texture and heat. It is a different take on my traditional lettuce wraps recipe and uses the fresh flavors of pineapple combined with the smokiness of shrimp seasoned with chipotle adobo peppers, topped with the crunchiness of bacon. It was a flavor explosion in my mouth! This is so addicting that I could finish the entire bowl and head of butter lettuce :)

    Nice photograph my friend!
    I love any spicy shrimp wrap, we used to use some cabbage too overhere…
    btw, i like it even more if the shrimp is completely peeled and added some szechuan peppercorn….
