Lettuce Wrap with Clam Meat Stir-fry

Fish and Seafood

Lettuce Wrap with Clam Meat Stir-fry
Ingredients:
2 cups fresh corn kernels
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
1/2 cup diced jicama
8 dried soaked black mushrooms, stems discarded, their caps then diced
4 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup fresh boiled baby clams, minced
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar
2 scallions, minced
6 sprigs Chinese parsley, minced
lettuce leaves (at least as many as there are people being served)
Preparation:
1. Dice or chop all vegetables and set them aside.
2. Place a wok or fry-pan over medium-high heat. Add the oil, swirling to coat the sides, then add all the vegetables and stir-fry until they are tender-crisp, about two minutes.
3. Add clam meat, Chinese parsley, and the scallions, then the soy sauce, salt and sugar. Toss all until well mixed, then quickly transfer to a serving plate.
4. Put lettuce leaves on this or another serving plate. Everyone wraps a few spoonfuls of the clam mixture into one lettuce leaf, folds it in, and enjoys their own efforts and the chef's expertise.
