Thanksgiving is practically days away and I am sure you’re finalizing your Thanksgiving menu.
This year, if you wish to make something unconventional for your family–in addition to the traditional roast turkey–I have this perfect Turkey Lettuce Wraps recipe for you!
Imagine perfectly cooked, juicy and flavorful ground turkey seasoned with soy sauce and wrapped with fresh and refreshing lettuce leave, with a Hoisin-Sriracha dipping sauce…
ahhhh, my mouth is watering thinking about it. Making Turkey lettuce wrap is quite easy and I am sure it will be a crowd pleaser.
Soy sauce and dark soy sauce are two essential ingredients in this Turkey Lettuce Wraps recipe. My preferred choice is the new Pearl River Bridge Superior Light Soy Sauce and Pearl River Bridge Superior Dark Soy Sauce in the newly designed plastic bottle.
Pearl River Bridge is a premier Chinese brand and its soy sauce is 100% natural, with fermentation process passed down from generations ago.
I love the flavors imparted by Pearl River Bridge soy sauce in my Chinese recipes; it makes everything so much better. Pearl River Bridge soy sauces can be bought at Amazon.
To complete the dish, I made a Hoisin and Sriracha dipping sauce, which is perfect for the savory Turkey Lettuce Wraps.
Watch the cooking video above and make a big bunch of this as a Thanksgiving appetizer. I guarantee that everyone would enjoy it.
