Honey Sriracha Salmon Lettuce Wraps

lettuce wraps

Spicy-sweet salmon wrapped in crisp lettuce cups and topped with carrots, cilantro, and green onion. Finished with a squeeze of lime. Glaze adapted from Creme De La Crumb.

Yields: 2-4 servings



Place a frying pan over medium-high heat. Swirl the pan lightly with neutral oil like avocado or canola. Pat the salmon fillets dry and season them well with salt and pepper. Sear the salmon about 3-4 minutes per side, or until browned on the outside and cooked to medium on the inside.

Meanwhile, to a small saucepan over medium heat, add a small amount of oil and saute the garlic until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the water, Sriracha, honey, sugar, and soy sauce. Bring the mixture to a simmer and then gradually whisk in the cornstarch and water mixture, stirring until thickened, forming a glaze. Remove from heat.

Spoon some of the glaze over the salmon fillets, coating them. Reserve any remaining glaze to drizzle over the lettuce wraps. To assemble wraps: flake the salmon in large chunks with a fork. Fill each lettuce cup with salmon. Top with carrots, cilantro, and green onions. Serve with lime wedges, Sriracha, and remaining glaze.
