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.

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.
