kato's quick and easy lobster lettuce wrap

I live in the east coast of Canada and am fortunate to get fresh seafood on a regular basis. I made two large wraps but you could easily make three or four small ones. My sil was making Lobster rolls the other day and I decided that I wanted something a little different and a little lighter for myself. So I decided to create a simple lettuce wrap; it worked great. The wrap had a lovely flavor, nice textures and it was light and refreshing. Just perfect for a light lunch.
