What Lettuce is Best For Wraps?
If you would like the wraps to look like they do in the restaurant, you will need to use bibb or butter lettuce. Butter lettuce is really small and perfect if you are going to use the wraps as an appetizer. Whole Foods is the only store I consistently see butter lettuce. With other supermarkets it is very hit or miss for me.
I often turn my lettuce wraps into a main dish. I love to use romaine lettuce for main dish wraps. Romaine is larger and longer than bibb/butter lettuce. It can also withstand more filling. Because this recipe has sauce, you will need to be careful with overfilling the lettuce. Romaine makes it much easier to work with.
