Crisp lettuce wraps are the perfect foil for big, bold flavors. We use tender, flaky, quick-cooking fish for the filling, and amp it up with a curry spice blend. The nuoc cham sauce—fish sauce, lime juice, sugar, water, and chili garlic sauce—is ideal for dipping or drizzling. Pile on peanuts, cilantro, and fried shallots at the table for an interactive meal that lets everyone choose their flavors. Cook, relax, and enjoy! Get the recipe here.
