Turkey Lettuce Wraps

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Maito

This is an amalgamation I created from several recipes, and is absolutely delicious. Feel free to adjust meat and veggies according to your taste. Serves 6 as an appetizer, 3 if prepared as a main course. Thank you to Lavender Lynn for putting this in her best of 2010 cookbook!

These are EXCELLENT! we LOVED it. And the best part is, DH didn't mind the lettuce! I used ground chicken instead of turkey, added in balsamic vinegar instead of sherry and green pepper instead of red since that's what I had. Wonderful mix of flavours, I am not a huge fan of sesame oil and I initially thought 2 tsp of sesame oil would be a bit overpowering but it wasn't. Thank you, Maito, for sharing this wonderful recipe, I definitely will be making this again!
