  5. Meanwhile mix all of your ingredients for your sauce in a small bowl.
  6. Remove your filling from the skillet, place into a large serving dish and garnish with green onions and sesame seeds.
  7. (could easily be done before #6) Slice your head of lettuce in half, remove the core (cutting out a small triangle from the centre) and carefully peel your lettuce “cups” off, one by one.
  8. Spoon your filling into your cups, and drizzle with your sauce.
  9. Chew, taste, relax, appreciate, and make bloody sure there are napkins near by!
  1. Obviously you are not held to the above vegetables. If Mikey doesn't like something, switch it for another. No. Big. Deal.
