Lettuce Wraps

Looking for a low-carb recipe that's good to go for a light dinner, in-between snack and high in protein - that isn't just chicken! Haha!

I used tinned salmon in brine for these babies, but you can sub the salmon with tuna!

I just want to say I was really surprised to realise how filling they were. I was preparing to add some carbs as well and I didn't even feel the need to.

Classic butter lettuce works best for wrapping, I bought a packet from Woolworths for R19,00 and one can probably make 25 of them or more. So I would say this is definitely a super budget friendly recipe! #winning

Ingredients you'll need:

1 tin of tuna in brine/salmon in brine

1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

2 tbsp vegan mayo/B-well vegan mayo (These two are the best mayo's I know of)

1 tsp paprika (I used smoked sweet paprika from Nomu, Woolworths has a sweet one as well)

1 tsp garlic flakes

2 tbsp plain yogurt

chopped rosa tomatoes & cucumber as much as you like

salt & pepper to taste

classic butter lettuce leaves


1. Mix all the ingredients together except for the lettuce.

2. Add some chopped rosa cherry tomatoes and cucumber to the filling mix.

3. Mix all well.

4. Add about 1 tbsp of the filling to the middle of one lettuce wrap and roll it just like one would do with a normal wrap/pancake.
