If you haven’t had Larb before, it is a Laotian/Thai meat salad. It’s absolutely amazing. Larb is spicy, sweet, savory, funky, bright, sour, herbaceous, crunchy, refreshing, and so satisfying. This is why I think it is the most perfect food. It’s healthy while still being insanely flavorful and filling.

Author's Notes

You can use any kind of ground meat you have on hand. I tend to always have ground chicken in the freezer so I’m using chicken here.

Directions

Step 1
Heat Olive Oil (2 Tbsp) in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the Ground Chicken (8 oz) to the pan and season with Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (1 tsp) , Kosher Salt (1/2 tsp) , Granulated Sugar (1 tsp) , and Fish Sauce (1 Tbsp) . Using a spatula, break up the ground chicken into small crumbles and toss to evenly coat in the seasonings. Continue to cook for 5 minutes, until the chicken is mostly cooked through.
Step 2
Add the juice of the Lime (1) juice, Shallots (3) , and Scallions (3 stalks) to the chicken. Toss to combine and continue to cook for another 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Step 3
Add the Chopped Roasted Peanuts (1/3 cup) and toss to combine. Remove the larb from the heat and let it cool for a few minutes.
Step 4
Arrange a bunch of Lettuce Leaves (as needed) on a serving platter. Fill each lettuce leaf with a heaping spoonful of larb and a small wedge of the Orange (1) . Garnish with Fresh Mint (1 handful) and enjoy with extra limes!
