Lettuce Wraps are filled with ground turkey and doused in an Asian inspired sauce and tossed with water chestnuts, sweet pepper and green onions.
This recipe was inspired by my nephew Jacob. He made a similar Lettuce Wrap when we were on vacation in the Outer Banks. They were so delicious I vowed to recreate the recipe. Jacob used a bottle sauce but I decided to come up with my own sauce and I think I replicated his sauce to the tee.
Jacob used ground chicken in his version and I wanted to do the same, but the grocery store had something else in mind when I went grocery shopping, they were out of ground chicken so I opted for ground turkey. Either one will work fine in this recipe for Lettuce Wraps.
I used Butterhead lettuce for the Lettuce Wraps and topped them with green onions and cashews. I also made a Soy Ginger Sauce for dipping and recommend Sriracha for those of you who like things a bit spicy!
