Wash produce before use
Prep your protein
Ground meat: Cut a small corner from the ground meat packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.
Shrimp: Rinse and drain the shrimp. Pat dry on a paper-towel-lined plate.
Prep the bell pepper and onion; start cooking the filling
- Remove the stem, ribs, and seeds from the bell pepper; coarsely chop the pepper.
- Peel and finely chop enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups]; set aside ¼ cup [½ cup] for garnish.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the bell pepper, ¾ cup [1½ cups] onion, and as many dried chiles as you like, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables start to soften, 2 to 3 minutes.
Add your protein, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring and breaking up the ground meat if using, until the protein is lightly browned but not yet cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes for shrimp and 3 to 4 minutes for ground meat. While the filling is cooking, prepare the lime.
Prep the lime; finish the filling
- Zest the lime; cut the lime into wedges for garnish. [Zest both limes; cut 1 lime into wedges. Save the remaining zested lime for another use.]
To the pan with your protein and vegetables, stir in the Thai curry sauce base and lime zest and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce has thickened and your protein is cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat, discard the chiles, and season to taste with salt and pepper. While the filling is cooking, prepare the remaining ingredients.
Prep the lettuce and garnishes
- Trim the root end from the lettuce; separate the leaves.
- Using the bottom of a bowl or cup, lightly crush the cashews.
- Coarsely chop the cilantro.
Transfer the lettuce leaves to individual plates and top with the filling. Garnish with the cashews, cilantro, and remaining onion and serve with the lime wedges.
- Measure the onion.
- Time the cooking.
- Separate the lettuce leaves.
- Crush the cashews.
- Garnish the lettuce cups.
