Directions

In a medium-sized bowl, use a rubber spatula to mix the papaya, mango, red onion, tomato, 1/2 teaspoon crab boil seasoning, cilantro, and orange juice until incorporated.

In a 10 or 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil. In a medium-sized mixing bowl add the chopped shrimp and remaining 1/2 teaspoon of crab boil seasoning and a 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes. Use a rubber spatula to mix until incorporated. Transfer the shrimp to the skillet and cook through. If the shrimp is raw cook 3 to 5 minutes, or cook until hot if the shrimp were pre-cooked, about 1 to 2 minutes. Set aside.

Wash lettuce and pull it apart into 8 large pieces, which will serve as your "lettuce cups". With a large spoon, scoop a spoonful of the mango and papaya relish into each lettuce cup followed by a tablespoon or so (4 or 5 pieces) of shrimp. Best served at room temperature.
