INGREDIENTS

Poultry

  • 454 g (1 lb) Quebec ground turkey or chicken, raw

Dressing

  • 45 ml (3 Tbsp.) GARLIC CILANTRO EVOO or GARLIC & CHILI EVOO
  • 2 cloves of garlic, peeled and chopped
  • 30 ml (2 Tbsp.) ginger, chopped
  • 30 ml (2 Tbsp.) lemongrass, chopped
  • 1 bunch of green onions, chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • Juice of 2 limes (more or less, to taste)

Salad

  • Leaves of 1 Boston lettuce
  • 125 ml (1/2 cup) fresh cilantro, coarsely chopped
  • 80 ml (1/3 cup) fresh mint, chopped

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a frying pan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add ground turkey, garlic, ginger, lemongrass and green onions. Cook for 6 to 8 minutes, or until turkey is cooked. Lightly season with salt and pepper, remove from heat and set aside in a bowl.
  2. Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, combine lime juice, fish sauce, maple syrup and sambal oelek. Pour a few spoonfuls of the mixture, cilantro and mint over the cooked meat and mix. Taste and adjust seasoning (with lime, fish sauce, sambal oelek, salt and pepper, if necessary).
  3. Serve ground turkey mixture on Boston lettuce leaves.

NOTES & TIPS

Traditionally, roasted rice powder is added to the meat mixture. To do this, grill (uncooked) rice in a pan for about 15 minutes, stirring frequently. Then grind the rice with a pestle and mortar or a coffee grinder to obtain a powder. Add 15 ml (1 Tbsp.) of rice powder to the cooked poultry.
