Asian Turkey Lettuce Wraps Recipe

Asian Turkey Lettuce Wraps Recipe

Chopped frozen vegetables make these wraps a snap. Add some Asian chili sauce if you want to spice it up a bit. —Susan Riley, Allen, Texas
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:5 servings


  • 1-1/4 pounds extra-lean ground turkey
  • 1 package (16 ounces) frozen stir-fry vegetable blend, thawed
  • 1/3 cup reduced-sodium teriyaki sauce
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 3 tablespoons reduced-fat creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh gingerroot
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 10 Boston lettuce leaves
  • Additional hoisin sauce, optional


  • 1. In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, cook turkey over medium heat until no longer pink.
  • 2. Coarsely chop stir-fry vegetables; add to the pan. Stir in the teriyaki sauce, hoisin sauce, peanut butter, ginger, vinegar and oil. Stir-fry over medium-high heat for 5 minutes. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer.
  • 3. Remove from the heat; stir in onions. Place a scant 1/2 cup turkey mixture on each lettuce leaf; fold lettuce over filling. Serve with additional hoisin sauce if desired. Yield: 5 servings.

"Very yummy & tasty! Even my teenagers loved it. I used regular creamy peanut butter as it was what I had on hand. I also couldn't find Boston lettuce, so I used butter lettuce & it worked just fine. I used a frozen Asian Vegetable Stir Fry with water chestnuts & loved the crunchiness of it."

"We made this into a stir fry over rice instead of lettuce. We really didn't care for it. The turkey was bland and the sauce was cloying and not very flavorful."

"Really good base recipe - made several changes to suit my family: I used fresh veggies instead of frozen, probably close to three times the amount the recipe calls for, doubled the sauce, cut the ginger in half, and added about 2-3 cups freshly cooked brown rice to stretch it and soak up the sauce. I'll be adding red pepper flakes to mine before I eat it to kick it up a notch. The flavor of the sauce is excellent!"

"My husband declared these the best lettuce wraps that I've ever made (we've tried quite a few recipes). The flavor of the sauce was amazing. Will definitely make these again.  I will be sure to use the low-sodium teriyaki sauce the next time.  I only had regular, and the wraps came out a little bit salty for my taste.

Update - made these again, but with extra lean ground beef this time (what I had on hand) - even better!  :)
