Grilled Shrimp Lettuce Wraps

I made this great recipe for my best friend who is gluten-free.  I made a mistake when I bought the Tamari soy sauce in the all-natural/gluten-free section of my local supermarket.  I did not read the ingredient label!!  The second ingredient in my purchase was WHOLE WHEAT!!  FYI, check the label.

Regardless of my mistake, this recipe is really tasty!!  It is so light and fresh with the mango salsa.  It’s seems like a lot of work, but this recipe is easy to prepare.

I took this recipe from the Taste of Home website. http://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/grilled-shrimp-lettuce-wraps
