Stir Fry Lettuce

Steps to follow:-
To make a Stir Fry Lettuce:
  1. Wash the lettuce, drain and separate the leaves. It’s important to make sure the lettuce is dry). Cut across the leaves into pieces about 1 inch wide.
  2. Combine the rice wine or dry sherry, soy sauce, and sugar in a small bowl, stirring. Set aside.
  3. Heat a wok over medium-high heat and add oil. When the oil is hot, add the garlic, ginger and red pepper flakes. Stir-fry until aromatic (5 to 10 seconds) and add the lettuce. Stir-fry the lettuce, sprinkling with the salt, for 1 to 2 minutes, until the leaves begin to wilt.
  4. Give the sauce a quick re-stir and swirl it into the wok. Stir-fry for 1 to 2 more minutes, until the lettuce, turns dark green. Remove from the heat and stir in the sesame oil. Serve immediately.

How to consume:

  • Preparing iceberg lettuce is not difficult. Begin by removing any outer leaves that are starting to wilt.
  • You can either remove the core at the base of the head or cut around it, depending on its intended use. To loosen the core, cut a circle around the base, then give it a few sharp wicks against the cutting board.
  • You can then peel off individual leaves for wraps or a bed of lettuce or cut the head into wedges and chop it up as needed for the recipe. Before use, rinse the lettuce under cold water.
  • Dry it by patting the leaves with a towel, letting it air dry, or using a salad spinner.
Special Facts
Iceberg lettuce, botanically classified as LactucaSativa, is the name given to dozens of cultivars of lettuce, all of which are adapted to specific planting regions and time periods and belong to the Asteraceae family.
Iceberg lettuce is one of the only lettuce varieties that does not occur in red form as well as green. Iceberg lettuce that is developed for supermarket standards is packed in the field into cartons and then immediately oxygen deprived, and vacuum cooled in cold rooms to remove field heat.
This eliminates the opportunity for the lettuce to quickly break down. Iceberg lettuce is favoured for its long storage capabilities, versatility in culinary applications, and crunchy texture.
