Creamy Herb Sauce:


Special equipment:
eight 12-inch metal skewers
  1. Preheat a grill to medium high.
  2. Double-skewer the shrimp with 2 metal skewers, one skewer through the thicker part of the shrimp and one close to the tail (wooden skewers will work too, but soak for 30 minutes in water first); skewer 6 shrimp per skewer set. Repeat with the remaining shrimp and skewers.
  3. Mix together the paprika, garlic powder and coriander in a small bowl. Sprinkle both sides of the shrimp with the seasoning mixture, then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Drizzle the shrimp with olive oil. Grill until cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes a side.
  4. Arrange the shrimp on the lettuce cups and drizzle with the Creamy Herb Sauce. Top with the cilantro and dill. 

Creamy Herb Sauce:

  1. Combine the yogurt, cilantro, dill, mayonnaise, chili paste and garlic in a mixing bowl. Add the lemon juice as needed to make the sauce as thick, thin or acidic as you'd like. Season with salt and pepper.
