Your rating: None Average: 4 (438 votes)

Based on a popular Chinese dish, these fun wraps also make appealing appetizers for entertaining. Make it a meal: Serve with chile-garlic sauce and rice vinegar for extra zip; toss diced mango and strawberries with lime juice for a quick dessert.

Delicious and Easy!

This came out so awesome and it's perfect for someone who lives alone - a filling dinner and leftovers for lunch the next day or two. I added almost twice as much hoisen sauce & that added a lot more flavor. I only used cilantro for my herb & didn't feel like it was missing anything. I bet this would also be good with tofu substituted for the turkey...

Easy, easy, easy and tasty!!!

Made these last night and they were fantastic! Prepared, this recipe fed 3 people easily, with plenty of leftovers.

Buying all the ingredients for the 1st time can be somewhat expensive, but if you already have them in your pantry, then it's a pretty inexpensive dish to make.

I followed the recipe exactly, with the exception of adding and extra tbsp. of hoison sauce, sriracha, and chili garlic sauce. Also added a dash of sea salt, but I could have achieved a little more saltiness with a tad more soy sauce. Also, I dashed some seasoned rice vinegar on the actual lettuce wraps once they were all put together. I used fresh cilantro and chives for my herb topping. Was quite spicy, but I'm a spicy kind of girl! Loved this recipe, will make it again!

Easy, tasty, healthy

Not good at all

This recipe was easy to make but tasted bland...the 5 spice was too strong and we only used 1/2 of the amount called for in the recipe.

You used half of the spice

You used half of the spice and it tasted bland? This is the recipe's fault?
