Asian Lettuce Cups
"This appetizer—which can also be a meal—is one of my favorites to order when I dine out," says Toby Amidor, M.S., R.D., author of The Greek Yogurt Kitchen. "However, I tend to steer clear of the cups because they are brimming with sodium and oozing with fat. I'd rather make my own version so I can control the ingredients. In this recipe, I use small amounts of high-sodium ingredients like fish sauce and soy sauce and combine them with flavorful ingredients like sriracha, lime juice, and herbs in order to get a burst of flavor without the guilt."
