Crunchy iceberg lettuce cups are a fun (and low-calorie!) way to serve this shrimp stir-fry. Choose the largest head of iceberg you can find and save any leftovers for sandwiches or salads. If you don't have enough large leaves, simply stack two smaller leaves together.

Halve and core lettuce; gently separate 8 large leaves, trimming if necessary to make 5-inch (12 cm) lettuce cups. Set aside.

In large nonstick skillet or wok, heat half of the oil over medium-high heat; cook shrimp, turning occasionally, until pink and opaque throughout. Remove to cutting board; halve lengthwise. Set aside.

In same skillet, heat remaining oil over medium heat; cook garlic and ginger, stirring, until fragrant, about 20 seconds. Add bok choy, carrot, salt and pepper; cook, stirring, until tender-crisp, about 2 minutes. Stir in bean sprouts, green onion and shrimp.
