Mango Shrimp Salad Wrap

My husband came up with this recipe.   It was unbelievable.  I never wanted it to end.  So light and refreshing. Perfect summer dinner.   We served it with a side salad.  It does take a little more time to prepare than we normally do for dinners so I can't call this "quick & easy" but it's worth it. Trust me!  (This recipe makes 4 tortillas). 

1/3 cup low fat sour cream
1/3 cup low calorie mayo
1/4 cup fresh basil - chopped
2 TBS fresh chives - chopped
1 TBS fresh mint - chopped
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 TBS lemon juice
1 cup baby spinach
1 1/2 pound large gulf shrimp in shell, peeled and deveined
2 large ripe mangos, peeled and cut into 1/2" slices
4 Tortillas (we used the whole wheat ones)

1.  Put sour cream, mayo, basil, chives, s&p in a blender until the mixture is smooth.  It should be a pale green color when done.

2.  Heat a nonstick pan on medium - high heat.  Once the pan is warm, add the shrimp.   Let them cook for several minutes on each side until done.  Make sure the shrimp are fully cooked or else they will be mushy after the next step.   

3.  Immediately transfer the shrimp to a bowl of ice water for 2-3 minutes.  Then drain well and pat dry.  Cut the shrimp into large chunks. 

4. Add the shrimp to the dressing you made in the blender.  Stir to combine. 

5.  Turn a stove burner on med - high heat.  Add one tortilla at a time directly to the burner, turning over & over with tongs until it's pliable and has a few "grill" marks.  Usually 30 seconds on each side.

6.  Divide the baby spinach to each tortilla, arranging it across the middle.  Then divide up the mango on top of the spinach.   Top with the shrimp salad.   Roll up the wraps & cut in half.    Enjoy!
