These lettuce wraps make a light, but satisfying meal. The flavorful, slightly spicy salmon gets its flavor from Gochujang, a Korean chili paste that you can find at most grocery stores or online.

Chef's Tip

This platter is designed for sharing, so you can custom make each wrap to taste!

Directions:

  1. To make the marinade, combine the gochujang with the soy sauce, garlic and oil.
  2. Place the salmon in a shallow pan and cover in the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  3. Preheat the grill or oven to 450°F and soak the Cedar plank in warm water for 15 minutes.
  4. Wash the lettuce and tear off as many whole leaves as you can.
  5. Cut the cucumber into sticks and give green onions, chilies, and cilantro a rough chop.
  6. Place the lettuce on a large platter and add the green onions, rice, cucumber, bean sprouts, cilantro and chilis.
  7. Add the planked salmon and serve with hoisin sauce and lime wedges.
