Once Christmas is over, I’m more than ready to say goodbye to all the heavy, rich foods. When I ring in the New Year, I’m going to have plenty of better-for-me party foods available, including my Sweet and Spicy Shrimp Lettuce Wraps. These wraps will be the star of your New Year’s Eve Party.

How to Make Sweet and Spicy Shrimp Lettuce Wraps

My Sweet and Spicy Shrimp gets a spicy kick from Cajun seasoning. The sweetness comes from Don Victor® Orange Blossom Comb Honey Globe Jar. Don Victor® Honey is raw, filtered honey, not heated or processed in any other way.

You can find Don Victor® Honey at Walmart within the Hispanic Aisle. I love the fact that the honeycomb is included in the jar of honey because I add a wedge of the comb to each one of my Sweet and Spicy Shrimp Wraps.

Did you know that honeycomb can be eaten? It’s delicious! Not only do I top my Sweet and Spicy Shrimp with a wedge of honeycomb, I like to eat it on top of salads with crumbled goat cheese. You can also top toast, biscuits, and crackers with honeycomb.
