Thai Turkey Lettuce Wraps

We love spice blends for weeknight dinners-you get complex flavor without having to measure out tons of different spices. They're even great[ used in surprising ways-like in this Thai-style turkey salad, which uses seafood seasoning and comes together in less than 30 minutes.]
