You’re probably thinking ‘Rachel, what the heck is the point of having lettuce wraps if you’re just going to fry the fish anyway?’ And my response to your thought is ‘Don’t question my eccentricity.’
Can I just tell you that I’ve been obsessed with lettuce wraps lately? They are so awesome! This is strange because my entire life I’ve detested lettuce as a topping on any burger, taco, or any other food item. Gross.
Just like mustard, mayo, ketchup, relish, onions, tomatoes, or other condiments.
Effing repulsive, I tell you.
Yeah, I was THAT girl who ordered a sub from Subway saying “Meat and cheese only, please” and then still having the guy behind the counter stumped that I didn’t want any other toppings. Actually I’m still like that for the most part, but now I don’t eat sandwiches anyway so there’s no need to avoid gross condiments.
While I’m on topic, I think most deli or picnic foods should be banned. Deviled eggs? I avoid them like the plague. Ham salad? I won’t even talk to you if you have it on your plate. ‘Salads’ should not be SCOOPABLE and filled with mayo, d*mnit! [*The only exception to this Salad Rule is Watergate salad, because it’s dessert and freaking delicious.]
So like I was saying, lettuce wraps are the shizz. So is gingery red cabbage. And so is this awesome paleo breading recipe.
