In our house we love a good wrap. We’ve been enjoying some summer picnics lately and the wrap lends itself perfectly to the outdoors. This wrap in particular really hit the spot for me. The spicy heat of the shrimp combined with the creamy flavors of avocado screamed summer. It is light, healthy, and full of flavor. I like to wrap mine in foil for on the go enjoyment. In this particular recipe I used pre-cooked shrimp. While I usually cook everything from scratch myself, the precooked shrimp makes for a really easy, fool proof meal. If you wanted to purchase raw shrimp you would need to peel them, and saute them in a skillet for a few minutes until they turn pink.
