Turkey Larb has become a semi-regular contestant on our ‘dinner at home’ dance card. Sure, it doesn’t have the most attractive name (poor Larb) but what’s in a name anyway?
Originating in Thailand, Larb is a tasty, healthy and easy to fix dish that’s especially appealing in the summer. The recipe recommends serving with white or sticky rice but I prefer brown rice ( because I don’t really care for white rice and I care for sticky rice just a little bit tooo much) I’ve overstuffed the lettuce leaves a bit in this photo as I’m steering clear of carbs entirely at the moment. Except in Chainbreaker IPA beer. Which, btw, is delicious with Larb. 😉
Seriously, beer & Larb…how glamourous can I get?!

PS. You might want to go a little lighter on the fish sauce and add fresh garlic.
