Thai Style Minced Turkey Lettuce Wraps


  • a few slices of leftover turkey chopped into small cubes
  • little gem lettuce
  • 1 red onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic finely chopped
  • 1 handful of coriander chopped (including the stalks)
  • 1 long red chilli julienned lengthwise or 2-3 birds eye chillies if you prefer it hotter
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce or to taste
  • 2 limes cut into wedges


  • In a hot pan, add some oil and fry the onions for about 2 minutes until it softens
  • Add the garlic and stir for another minute
  • Add the leftover turkey and stir in to mix and warm up
  • Season with the fish sauce, start with a little and adjust seasoning to your own taste
  • Take off the heat
  • Add in the chillies and coriander and combine evenly
  • Serve on individual leaves of the little gem lettuce with some wedges of lime.
  • Alternatively, you can serve this as a starter in a big bowl and a separate plate of lettuce leaves. Everyone can then make their own lettuce parcels.
