I love lavash bread, is something that you will always find in my kitchen. I usually use as pizza dough, quesadilla or as a toast. This time, instead of using tortillas for my shrimp tacos I use the lavash bread.

By the way, have a nice and safe Labor Day :-)


For the shrimp
1 lb large shrimp deveined and clean
3 green onion finely chopped
4 garlic cloves chopped
Pinch of cumin
Salt and pepper to taste
Pinch of paprika
1 tablespoon olive oil

For the salsa
2 Roma tomatoes, without seed and chopped
1 jalapeno finely chopped
½ red onion finely chopped
½ bunch cilantro finely chopped
Pinch of salt
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

Romaine lettuce shredded


For the shrimp
In a bowl place the shrimp and add all the ingredients, let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes and sautee in a hot pan.

For the salsa
Add all the ingredients of the salsa in a small bowl

Assembly of the “tacos”

Set the lavash bread in a plate, place the shrimps, the salsa and top it with the shredded lettuce. Roll it up and enjoy!

Did you know that the baking of lavash is by slapping the flat rolled dough against the hot walls of a clay oven? Lavash is a flatbread very popular in Iran, Armenia, Turkey, Georgia, Pakistan and Azerbajan.
