Sriracha has become a phenomenon for good reason. It's a malleable little condiment, and the California-made version is a masterpiece of flavor harmonization. Here, we give it a tomato paste-ish treatment by toasting it in oil before building the addictive turkey mixture. Flag this page.
Serves 4 (serving size: 2 lettuce wraps)


+ Add To Shopping List
2 tablespoons Mad Fresh Sriracha
1 tablespoon grapeseed oil
1/2 cup minced onion
1 tablespoon grated fresh gingerroot
1 pound ground turkey
1/4 cup sliced green onions
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons chopped dry roasted peanuts
1 1/2 tablespoons fish sauce
2 Thai chiles, minced
8 Bibb lettuce leaves
1 cup cucumber cut into matchsticks
1 cup carrot cut into matchsticks
1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves


Hands-on: 20 Minutes
Total: 20 Minutes

Combine sriracha and oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Cook 3 minutes or until mixture begins to bubble.

Add the onion and ginger. Stir for a minute.

Add the turkey. Raise the heat to high. Cook 6 minutes, stirring until the meat is scattered throughout the pan. Keep stirring. So long as nothing's burning, keep the heat cranked and the turkey moving.

When the turkey is cooked through and slightly crisped, turn off the heat. Toss in the green onions, the lime juice, the peanuts, the fish sauce, and the thai chiles. Fold to combine.

Divide the turkey mixture evenly among the lettuce leaves. Top each leaf with 2 tablespoons cucumber, 2 tablespoons carrot, and 1 tablespoon cilantro.

Serve with fresh lime wedges, if desired.
