"This is out of the September 2021 Good Housekeeping magazine...Gochujang can vary in spice level depending on the brand. It's a good idea to taste a tiny bit before using in a recipe and adjust the amount to your level of heat tolerance."

Yummers - these lettuce wraps were so good! I should have paid attention to your note, because I didn't notice until too late that my gochujang was HOT!!! But even though my nose was running, just couldn't stop till I was done! I did tweak this a little bit. Added some chopped shiitake mushrooms and water chestnuts left over from another dish. Chopped up all but 4 of the shrimp (for the pic) and sauteed all the shrimp with the veggies and the amazing sauce. What I really loved about this is the flavor when every single bite has some cucumber, radish, Thai basil and mint. M-m good! Thanks for sharing this keeper! (BTW, using Thai basil, rather than the regular one, makes all the difference in the world)
