Turkey Salad, with avocado, mint, and fish sauce
Yield: 4

Turkey Salad With Avocado


  • 454 grams ground turkey
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • Salt, to taste
  • 1 Tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 Tbsp fresh ginger, grated
  • Drizzle of oil
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh mint
  • 1/4 cup sliced scallions
  • 1 avocado, cubed
  • 1 head green leaf lettuce, torn into large pieces
  • Lime juice, to taste (around 2 Tbsp, or 3 limes worth)


  1. Thoroughly mix ground turkey with brown sugar, a good thwack of salt, along with the ginger and fish sauce. Let it sit while you chop all of your herbs and avocado, then arrange lettuce on a large serving plate.
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over high heat, press the meat into the skillet to make a large, thin hamburger. Cook until the bottom has a nice brown crust, about 5 minutes, then flip and cook until the meat is cooked through, about another 4 minutes. Remove from the skillet and let cool for 5 minutes before slicing.
  3. Scatter turkey over the lettuce, top with herbs and avocado, then drizzle with lime juice and serve.
