Dish Type


1 lb ground turkey

1/3 c hoisin sauce

1/2 c barbecue sauce

1 tbsp fresh ginger root, peeled and grated

1 clove garlic, minced

1/4 c pine nuts, toasted

1/4 c diced scallions

2 tbsp crystallized ginger, finely minced

10 large romaine or iceberg lettuce leaves, washed, dried and chilled


Over medium heat, crumble ground turkey into a wok or large skillet and sauté, stirring to break up any clumps. Cook until lightly browned.

Stir in hoisin and barbecue sauces, ginger root and garlic. Cook until hot and well blended.

Mix in toasted pine nuts, scallions and crystallized ginger, tossing gently just long enough to heat through and blend well.

To serve, spoon the hot turkey mixture into each lettuce leaf cup and roll tightly to enclose the turkey mixture.
