MEDITERRANEAN SURIMI LETTUCE WRAPS
If you have hung around A Cedar Spoon for any length of time you probably have figured out I have a deep love for anything Mediterranean. My mom’s side of the family is Lebanese and I just adore anything that incorporates Mediterranean flavors into a meal. You will almost always find seafood, feta cheese, olives, parsley, hummus and fresh vegetables in my fridge.
Today’s Mediterranean Surimi Lettuce Wraps use some of my favorite Mediterranean ingredients along with Simply Surimi and wrap them up in a crisp piece of lettuce. If you are looking for a heart healthy, light but filling meal this one if for you. It also can be prepared in under 20 minutes. You can’t beat a no-fuss meal like that.
These lettuce wraps use hummus, feta, olives, cucumbers, tomatoes and parsley as the pairing for the surimi. It is a great combination when put together and is light and healthy. If you love Greek Salads this recipe is for you. The fun thing about lettuce wraps is that you can set out all of the ingredients and your family can prepare their lettuce wraps to their liking with the ingredients on the table. It can be an interactive meal for kids too!
Speaking of Greek salads, did I tell you guys that Mike and I are planning our 10 year wedding anniversary trip for next year and we decided on Greece? In particular the Greek Islands. One of my bucket list destinations. I have always wanted to travel there and can’t wait to eat seafood and Mediterranean ingredients on a daily basis. These Mediterranean Surimi Lettuce Wraps are a great way to escape to the Greek Islands, even if it is only a trip through the food we make in our kitchens.
In celebration of National Seafood Month I have teamed up with Simply Surimi to bring your today’s Mediterranean Surimi Lettuce Wraps. If you don’t know a lot about Simply Surimi let me fill you in on this exciting new surimi seafood product.
It is made using no GMOs, added phosphates, artificial colors or flavors. It is certified gluten-free and certified sustainable by the Marine Stewardship Council and heart healthy by the American Heart Association. They have three varieties, the Simply Surimi Flake Style, Stick Style and Seafood Sticks. The stick style works great in California sushi rolls for those that enjoy making sushi at home. Sushi is another fun, interactive way the kids can get involved in the kitchen.
I love all of those things about their seafood. Simply Surimi is naturally fresh and delicious and perfect for seafood salads, snacks and hot dishes. In today’s recipe I used their Simply Surimi Flake Style product which is great for cold salads and lettuce wraps.
They are made of wild Alaska Pollock and 9 all natural ingredients. The stick style product works really well in salads, chowders and sushi. You can find Simply Surimi in your area by clicking this link .
