I saw Giada making these on The Today Show this morning
and they looked so yummy!
I can't wait to try them out!
Thai turkey lettuce cups
Giada De Laurentiis
1/3 cup fresh lime juice, from about 5 limes
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, from 1 large lemon
2 tablespoons fish sauce*
2 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons canola oil
1/2 red onion, diced
3 shallots, thinly sliced
1 (4-inch) piece of lemongrass, minced (about 1/4 cup)*
1 Thai chili, such as prik kee noo, or 1 serrano chili, stemmed and thinly sliced*
1 1/2 pounds ground turkey, preferably dark meat
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup chopped fresh mint
1 head butterlettuce, leaves separated
*can be found at specialty Asian markets
In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion, shallot, lemongrass, chili, and salt. Cook until the vegetables begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Add the turkey and season with salt. Cook, stirring frequently, until the meat and vegetables are cooked through, about 5 minutes.
Add the dressing to the pan and cook for 2 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and add the mint. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Spoon the turkey mixture onto the lettuce leaves and serve.
