To make piri piri sauce: Combine chili, lemon juice, cilantro, parsley, and garlic in a blender, and puree until smooth. With blender running, add 1 to 2 cups oil in a slow stream until well combined.
In a bowl, toss shrimp with 1 to 2 cup of the piri piri. Refrigerate 20 minutes.
Heat remaining oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add shrimp and cook for 2 minutes on each side or until opaque throughout. Transfer to a plate and sprinkle with salt. Squeeze lime quarters over shrimp.
Spread 1 to 2 teaspoons of remaining piri piri onto each lettuce leaf. Place 1 shrimp in center of each leaf; arrange in bowls and serve, encouraging guests to treat lettuce-wrapped shrimp as finger food.
