Drain on paper toweling. 7. Shred lettuce and arrange on a serving platter with shrimp on top. Chop Chinese parsley; sprinkle over as a garnish. Serve hot, accompanied by lemon wedges. NOTE: For the fish fillets, use sea bass, pike or haddock. VARIATION: For the Chinese sausage, substitute 1 tablespoon dried duck (soaked).
