    1. Take the shrimp and apply the paste to it. Marinate for about 5 hours.
    2. Take each leaf of lettuce, place around 5 shrimps in each leaf and tie the leaf round the shrimp with thread so as to cover the shrimp entirely. Keep aside for an hour.
    3. Then place the shrimp wraps in a steamer, and steam 4 wraps at a time for about 5 minutes.
