So, like I said, these are super quick and easy. The best part about these lettuce wraps is how incredibly flavorful they are! Sometimes I feel like quick recipes can be bland because the flavors don’t have a lot of time to develop.

This is why I love to cook Asian recipes on nights when I don’t have a lot of time.

My favorite Asian recipes don’t take a lot of time to braise or simmer; rather, they just need a quick sautĂ© or stir-fry and all of the bright flavors are right there!
