Ingredients

    For the Dressing:

  • 1/3 cup fresh lime juice (from about 5 limes)
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (from 1 large lemon)
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • For the Larb:

  • 3 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil
  • 1/2 red onion (diced)
  • 3 shallots (thinly sliced)
  • 1 4-inch piece lemongrass, minced (about 1/4 cup)*
  • 1 Thai chile (such as prik kee noo, or 1 serrano chile, stemmed and thinly sliced*)
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground turkey (preferably dark meat)
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh mint leaves
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 head butter lettuce (leaves separated)
  • Serving suggestion: sticky or steamed white rice

Instructions

  1. For the Dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together the lime juice, lemon juice, fish sauce and honey. Set aside.
  2. For the Larb: In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion, shallots, lemongrass, chile, and salt, to taste. Cook until the vegetables begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Add the turkey and season with salt. Cook, stirring frequently, until the meat and vegetables are cooked through, about 5 minutes. Add the dressing to the pan and cook for 2 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the mint. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  3. Spoon the turkey mixture onto the lettuce leaves and arrange on a serving platter. Serve with sticky rice.

    Regular lemon zest! Won’t be exactly the same but will still be tasty in this recipe.

    What would you suggest if you can’t find lemongrass?
