Karl’s Chicken Satay Lettuce Wraps with Peanut Sauce

This week’s dinner is being a bit of a challenge. Daughter Miriam has been sick and she is off all onions, garlic, and heavily spiced foods. Other diners are off, or limiting, starches. Leafy greens have also been requested, but I am getting tired of “just another green salad.”

Karl’s Salmon Lettuce Wraps with Raspberry Radish Slaw

Jan has been working 70-80 hour weeks lately—if only she would get paid for some of that overtime. It is hardly surprising that she has ended up working on our anniversary. Today is Jan and my 33rd anniversary. We are having the major celebration with cioppino tomorrow with the kids, but there is still tonight’s dinner to make special.

Karl’s Egg Salad Lettuce Wraps

I had boiled a bunch of eggs for when Jan was hosting the Ethno Breakfast and there were eight eggs left over. I was planning to make deviled eggs, for Jan’s visiting friends. However, the shells were not cooperative. What do you do when your eggs—instead of being smooth and pretty—come out with big chunks missing. Egg salad was the obvious choice, one of Jan’s friends, Pat, suggested using lettuce wraps.

Karl’s Mongolian Lamb Lettuce Wraps

The Cantonese word for lettuce (生菜, san1 choi3) sounds like rising fortune. Lettuce wraps are an auspicious dish to serve on the New Year. These wraps can be filled with anything you would like to put in them. Lamb is an auspicious dish for my family—it is kind of a Lueck thing. I plan to fill my lettuce wraps with Mongolian lamb.
