    From the South Beach diet people.

    Asian Chicken Salad Wraps

    Serves 4
    Prep time: 40 minutes
    1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
    1/3 cup fish sauce (see Ingredient Note)
    1/4 cup sugar substitute
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
    8 6-inch flour tortillas
    4 cups shredded romaine lettuce
    3 cups shredded cooked chicken (3/4 pound)
    1 large ripe tomato, cut into thin wedges
    1 cup grated carrots (2 medium)
    2/3 cup chopped scallions (1 bunch)
    2/3 cup slivered fresh mint

    1. Whisk lemon juice, fish sauce, sugar substitute, garlic and crushed red pepper in a small bowl until sugar substitute is dissolved. Set aside.

    2. Preheat oven to 325F. Wrap tortillas in foil and heat in oven for 10 to 15 minutes, until softened and heated through. Keep warm.

    3. Combine lettuce, chicken, tomato, carrots, scallions and mint in a large bowl. Add 1/3 cup of the reserved dressing; toss to coat.

    4. Set out chicken mixture, tortillas and remaining dressing for diners to assemble wraps at the table. Serve immediately.

    To warm tortillas in a microwave, stack between two damp paper towels; microwave on high for 30 to 60 seconds, or until heated through.

    Ingredient Note

    That sounds delicious.

    I'd try it, but finding fish sauce in Nicaragua seems highly unlikely.

    I think you could substitute the dressing with a peanut sauce if you can't find fish sauce. A lot of ppl eat the Asian wraps (more authentic ones are made with rice wraps) with peanut sauce. You can make it with some peanut butter, soy sauce and some sugar.

    I don't know if that would add to calories though since this original recipe seems low calorie (but I'd prolly use real sugar instead of artificial sugar, aspartame and splenda are bad for you so I hear)

    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.
