Today’s recipe is a neat little appetizer that comes to us from Jean-Marie Josselin via Coastal Living Magazine.  The recipe serves eight as an appetizer and is sure to delight friends and guests. Plus, if you’re looking for a light dinner for just one or two, adding a side of rice could make it into a full fledged meal. Shrimp lovers are sure to enjoy this one. The green papaya salad along with the sweet and sour sauce creates a delicious complexity atop the simply yummy shrimp and butter lettuce underneath.
