In Honor of World Emoji Day, Enjoy This Recipe Written ENTIRELY in Emoji
Today is World Emoji Day, which you may or may not have known. But what you *definitely* do know is that emojis have changed the way we communicate. So while there may be a holiday for pretty much everything these days (National Taco Day and National Picnic Day come to mind), World Emoji Day holds a special place in our hearts. Which is why we are LOVING Plated‘s new take on sharing drool-worthy meals: recipes written entirely in emojis. Take, for example, this delectable recipe for grilled shrimp lettuce cups.
These light, healthy, and uber-yummy shrimp cups are simple to make and even easier to devour. But what really impresses us is the concept of making them following a recipe written entirely in emojis.
For those who need a translation, you can head over to Plated’s website to check out the traditional recipe. But as long as you know the proportions you need, why not give the emoji version a try? Just make sure to look at the original recipe for minor pieces of info, like how to add the taco mixture to the lettuce wraps. Here’s what you’ll need:
- 8 ounces shrimp
- ¼ teaspoon chili powder
- ¼ teaspoon ground cumin
- ⅛ teaspoon garlic powder
- ⅛ teaspoon dried oregano
- ¼ teaspoon smoked paprika
- 1 red onion
- 1 lime, divided
- 1 head butter lettuce
- 1 cup grape tomatoes
- 1 1/2 teaspoons Cholula hot sauce
- 1 container Chobani nonfat Greek yogurt
