Buffalo Shrimp Wrap


This post is a little late but I wanted to share anyways.  Friday we made buffalo shrimp wraps and let me just say they are one of my favorite.  In Wilmington there's a restaurant called Carolina Ale House that made this delicious Shrimp Zinger Wrap which is essentially shrimp tossed in buffalo sauce and rolled up with onion, lettuce, and tomato in a wrap.  When I first ordered it I was a little skeptical because I wasn't sure about shrimp in buffalo sauce, but after one bite I was hooked and new I had to recreate it at home.

The weekend is usually a time where we go a little crazy with junk, go out to eat or pick up something quick so I wanted something "takeout-ish" in order to not feel deprived but still be somewhat healthy, so this was the perfect thing.

And, a while back I found these really cute red baskets and checkered paper in a bbq set at Walmart for only $5 and I am so glad I got it!  Now I can always pretend I am at a diner and make dinner more fun!  A little cheesy I know, but I like thats how I like it.
