  • 100g dried thin rice noodles
  • 1 red chilli, seeds removed, thinly sliced
  • 2 carrots, shredded
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced into half moons
  • handful coriander leaves, roughly chopped
  • handful mint leaves, roughly chopped
  • cooking oil spray
  • 500g turkey mince
  • 2 tbsp fish sauce
  • 2 tbsp light brown sugar
  • juice 4 limes
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed


  1. Pour boiling water over the noodles and allow to sit for 5 mins. Drain, rinse under cold water and put in a large bowl, along with the chilli, carrots, onion and herbs.

  2. To make the lime-chilli dressing, mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl or a screw-top jar.

  3. Heat a non-stick frying pan or wok over a high heat until extremely hot. Lightly coat with oil and fry the turkey until nicely browned, breaking into chunks as you go. Add the noodle mixture, pour the dressing over the salad and mix well.
