Smoked Sausage & Clam Lettuce Wraps
by Carrie Mason
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2 links Teet's Smoked Garlic Pork Sausage, diced (small dice)
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cans chopped baby clams, drained and broth reserved
2 teaspoons ginger
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 1/2 Tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds
1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon hot sauce (I used Sriracha)
3 scallions, diced (white and green parts used)
1 teaspoon sesame oil

Boston or iceberg lettuce leaves for serving

Add the oil to a hot skillet or wok. Saute the sausage and garlic for about 3-5 minutes, add the clams. Continue cooking over high heat, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes. Add the ginger, pepper flakes, brown sugar, and sesame seeds. Stir until the sugar is dissolved, about 1 minute. Add the soy sauce and hot sauce, scraping up the bottom of the pan and stirring constantly until all the browned bits from the bottom of the pan are incorporated. If more liquid is needed, stir in a bit of the reserved clam broth. Remove from the heat, add the scallions and drizzle with the sesame oil.

Serve in Boston lettuce or iceberg lettuce leaves.
