Print this recipe
Spring rolls are certainly a Chinese takeout fave, but the wrappers make it a low-carb no-go. Right? As it turns out, the recipe below is the ideal low-carb treat with all the flavor of a traditional spring roll. With fresh vegetables and shrimp for filling, you're looking at a healthy, delicious dish.
The main culprit in a spring roll, at least when it comes to low-carb diets, is the wrapper. This version replaces this starchy envelope with lettuce, making these rolls far more low-carb friendly. Add a luscious protein- and fat-rich peanut sauce, and you're ready to serve these up.
