Chef notes

The explanation I like this recipe is as a result of it is tremendous simple, flavorful and spicy, and it actually packs an umami punch. Make your self three to 4 of those wraps for an excellent satisfying, protein-packed meal.

Method tip: Prepare dinner shrimp individually from floor turkey to forestall shrimp from overcooking. Cornstarch helps to thicken sauce. To stop lettuce wraps from falling aside, use 2 lettuce leaves per serving.

Swap possibility: You’ll be able to swap out floor turkey for floor rooster, floor beef, plant-based proteins, and so forth.


For the spicy-umami sauce:

Add all substances in a medium-sized bowl and whisk till properly integrated; put aside.

For the lettuce wraps:


On medium-high warmth, place 4 tablespoons olive oil in massive saucepan, add floor turkey and dry seasonings to pan, and brown about 2 minutes.


Add shallots, garlic, serrano chile, ginger and lemongrass paste, and proceed browning turkey till totally cooked and greens are aromatic and tender, about 3 extra minutes.


Take away browned turkey from pan with slotted spoon and put aside in a medium chrome steel bowl to maintain heat.


Place pan again on warmth, add remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil and shiitake mushrooms to pan, and sauté for about 2 minutes, till they begin to get tender.


Add shrimp to pan, add pinch salt and pepper, and proceed to sauté with mushrooms till shrimp is cooked by and pink, about 2 to three minutes.


Take away shrimp and mushrooms from pan and put aside in a separate medium-sized chrome steel bowl.


Place pan again on medium-high warmth, add spicy-umami sauce to pan and whisk till it begins to return to a boil and barely thickened to sauce-like consistency, about 30 seconds; then add all shrimp, floor turkey and a couple of tablespoons chopped cilantro again into pan, and toss till well-coated and lined in sauce; season to style.


To assemble lettuce wraps, use 2 lettuce leaves to make one wrap.


Place a heaping 2 to three spoonfuls of shrimp-turkey combination in every lettuce wrap; do not overstuff.


High with 1 avocado slice, a teaspoon of fried onions, a lime wedge on the facet, and end with chopped cilantro. Repeat course of till all lettuce wraps are assembled.


Squeeze recent lime on lettuce wraps and revel in.
