SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - These lettuce wraps require no cooking and are great as an appetizer or for lunch. I used canned unflavored salmon, but you can grill or poach fresh salmon in place of the canned variety. It's light, refreshing and delicious. Remember to use California avocados for the best results. Enjoy!
2 large avocados
2 tbsp. fresh lime juice
1/2 to 1 can salmon, flaked
1/4 cup each - diced English or Persian cucumber, shredded carrot, thinly sliced red bell pepper
1 tsp five spice seasoning
Sea salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
1 head butter lettuce, cored, wash and dry leaves
Cut avocado into small to medium chunks, add lime juice and toss to coat. Add remaining ingredients and using a rubber spatula, gently toss to combine. Taste and adjust seasoning.
Arrange leaves on a large platter, spoon the avocado-salmon mixture onto the center of each leaf and serve with accompanying sesame ginger miso dressing (see recipe below).
Sesame Ginger Miso Dressing
