Just saw this on Food Network,looked delish! Giada wrapped the mixture into lettuce leaves, that is what I will do.I think any lettuce can be used and I also don't think the rice is needed if you use this as a filler for a lettuce wrap. *Can be found at specialty Asian markets. Posted for ZWT6.

MY PRIVATE NOTES
RECIPE MADE WITH LOVE BY

I’ve been wanting to make this for awhile. I’m sorry I didn’t sooner. Seriously, no need to go out and get it. This is a huge hit. I read the reviews over at Food Network and made some changes. No way would 2 T. Fish sauce work, overkill! You only need a little and it goes a long way. I used ground white turkey, 2 Thai chiles, garlic, 2 t. Red Boat fish sauce (it’s the best). The lemongrass was the perfect amount noted in the recipe. Added a little more slivered red onion in with the sauce and added basil and cilantro. Amazing!Reply
