Five-Spice Turkey & Lettuce Wraps

June/July 2006

Your rating: None Average: 4 (403 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.

Love this recipe. I've made it a few times, and I can't stop nibbling while preparing it! Agree on the addition of some soy sauce, and also some vinegar such as rice wine vinegar gives it a nice fresh punch. The 5-spice powder and fresh herbs are a must, I think, but the recipe is very flexible.

These were outstanding!

I doubled the recipe, added 2 tbsp of siracha and 1/2 cup of Cashew pieces.
Sprinkled with Cilantro/Thai Basil/Chive blend. I will definitely make these again.

Made this for a dinner party, and it was great. Great flavor, but I think I will add some red pepper flakes when I'm not making it for a group because it isn't spicy as prepared. The turkey mixture is really good on its own as well!

We love this recipe! I leave out the brown rice however! This is a great, light, and satisfying meal! I also like to add crushed red pepper flake to the turkey mixture for some heat!! Love it!

I love this recipe! It has great flavor and its good for you! I also like that it is very simple to make. I have yet to run into anyone that doesn't like it. I plan on making it tomorrow night for one of my picky friends and her fiancee so we will see what they think! ;-)
