1/2 onion, chopped

1/2 jalapeƱo or Serrano chile, seeded and chopped

6 water chestnuts, chopped

2 tablespoons raisins

1/3 cup hoisin sauce

8-10 butter lettuce leaves

Marinade Ingredients:

1 teaspoon cornstarch

Cut shrimp or fish into 1/4-inch pieces. Place in a bowl with marinade ingredients and stir to coat. Let stand for 10 minutes. Combine seasoning ingredients in a bowl. Set electric wok to 400 degrees F; heat for 2 minutes. Add cooking oil, garlic, onion, and chile; cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add seafood, water chestnuts, and raisins; stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add seasonings and cook, stirring, until sauce boils and thickens. Remove to a serving plate.
