1/3 cup hoisin sauce
1/2 cup commercial barbecue sauce
1 Tbs fresh ginger root peeled and grated

  1. Over medium heat, crumble turkey into a wok or large skillet and saute, stirring to break up any clumps. Cook until lightly browned.

  2. Stir in hoisin and barbecue sauces, ginger root and garlic. Cook until hot and well blended.

  3. Mix in pine nuts, scallions and crystallized ginger, tossing gently just long enough to heat through and blend well.

  4. To serve, spoon the hot turkey mixture into each lettuce leaf cup and roll tightly to enclose the turkey mixture.
