Teriyaki Turkey Lettuce Wraps

I love discovering new recipes. Especially when I'm not looking for them, and they are easy and brilliant! I was making my son sloppy joe's with Ground Turkey, and this recipe (or the base anyway) was on the back of the package! I quickly canceled my plans for lunch, and made these lettuce wraps instead!

Teriyaki Turkey Lettuce Wraps

1 lb ground turkey
1 bottle of Teriyaki sauce
Lettuce leaves (I used Romaine)
Shredded Coconut
Cubed Pineapple
1 Carrot (or a few baby carrots) shredded

Brown Ground Turkey; rinse. Mix in teriyaki sauce until the desired consistency. (Sorry- I just pulled this together and didn't measure!) You want just a coating- not a soppy mess!

Spoon Turkey mixture onto a large piece of lettuce. Top with shredded coconut, pineapple, carrot strips, and peanuts.

Now... try to eat it without making a huge mess! :)


  1. I have lived on ground turkey for about 6 years now so always on the look out for new things to do with it. thanks!

  2. I love lettuce wraps! I just posted a lettuce wrap recipe on my blog, too. I had never thought of using teriyaki in lettuce wraps before and I don't know why! Of course! Teriyaki would be perfect for lettuce wraps, duh! :) I'm saving this recipe.

  3. Sounds absolutely DELICIOUS! I'm always looking for new ways to use that heart healthy Ground Turkey. Thanks Krista!
