Cajun Shrimp and Cucumber Wraps

Like I have said in the past, shrimp is a favorite around the Connor house and we like it a whole variety of ways... Bella was craving cucumbers one day, so I thought that I would whip up this quick and easy snack. Definitely a hit! Although the hubs isn't too found of anything on a tortilla shell, the kids and I like wraps of all kinds...

Cajun Shrimp and Cucumber Wraps
(recipe found in Taste of Home)

1/4 cup lemon juice
4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 1/2 teaspoon cajun seasoning, divided
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 pound uncooked large shrimp, peeled and deveined (tails removed)
8 lettuce leaves
4 flatbread wraps (I used tortilla shells)
2 small cucumbers, cut lengthwise into quarters
4 thin sliced red onions
1/4 cup fresh parsley leaves

In a small bowl, whisk lemon juice, 3 tablespoons oil, 1 teaspoon cajun seasoning and pepper. Toss shrimp with remaining cajun seasoning. In a large skillet, heat remaining oil over medium high heat. Add shrimp mixture; cook and stir until shrimp turn pink. Place lettuce on flatbread wraps; top with cucumbers, onion, parsley and shrimp. Drizzle with dressing; roll up and chow down!
