Asian Lettuce Cups

Prawn filled lettuce cups

Lettuce cups are a fun dish because it requires you to interact and assemble the filling into the lettuce, and eating with your hands make food taste better!

ingredients for filling:
1/3 pound ground turkey
1/2 pound prawns, peeled and cut into bite sized pieces
2 spring onions ( chopped finely)
3 garlic gloves ( chopped finely)
a bunch of chives
Lima beans 3 tablespoon
2 stalks of chopped celery
half of a red pepper, chopped
Hoisin sauce, 2 tablespoons
chili sauce, 1 tablespoon
sesame oil


In a skillet, heat up sesame oil and cook garlic and spring onions. Add ground turkey, stirring and breaking down the ground turkey to make sure it's not sticking together in lumps. Add in celery, red peppers, and Lima beans. Stir fry 5 minutes for 5 minutes. Then add prawns and chives, frying for only 2 - 3 minutes, and then stir in the Hoisin sauce and chili sauce. Turn off heat and remove the skillet from the stove.

Wash lettuce leaves and break carefully, and dry well.

Scoop filling into lettuce cup and serve!
