Nom! Last night we fought the urge to go out for dinner and decided instead to make turkey lettuce wraps. This probably took us twenty minutes and cost half the price of buying a similar dish in a restaurant.
1lb leaned ground turkey
Two gloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
A quarter red onion, finely chopped
A quarter red pepper, finely chopped
One celery stalk, finely chopped
Two tablespoons oil for cooking
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon fish sauce
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
Juice of half a lime
Hot chilli flakes to taste
Sauté garlic and ginger in oil until fragrant. Add ground turkey, brown until cooked. Add celery and onion, cook until softened, about two-three minutes. Now add the sauce and red peppers. Taste and adjust seasoning to your preference – more spicy, another squirt of lime, slash of sesame oil.. You get the idea. Serve in a large bowl topped with shredded carrots alongside a heaping pile of butter or iceberg lettuce, cilantro, cucumbers and extra limes. Enjoy!
