  1. Pulse the 2 chopped peppers in a food processor until finely chopped. Process in the mayonnaise and paprika to mix well. Coarsely chop 4 of the shrimp, and stir into the mayonnaise. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Lay the tortilla halves flat on a clean work surface, with the rounded edges facing you. Gently roll each tortilla into a cone shape, folding in a bit of the rounded edge on your first roll, so the filling will be enclosed.
  3. To fill the wraps, pack half of the lettuce into the 8 tortilla "cones." Top the lettuce with the shrimp-mayonnaise mixture, the diced avocado and bell pepper, and then the remaining lettuce.
  4. Garnish each wrap with 1 whole shrimp. Allow two wraps per person, and serve immediately.
