With football season here and the demand of delicious appetizers on the rise (especially with the holidays coming up!), I have been determined to create a new family favorite.

So I made some flavorful shrimp cauliflower lettuce wraps, with garlic of course! And they were a hit while we watched the last football game (GO PACK GO!).

I also addedd some chopped walnuts to add some more delicious nutrients to this recipe. These are definitely filling and at the top of my list for appetizers. This is how I #Seafoodparty
