Method

  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.

Lovely versatile recipe I used olive oil for the dressing instead of fish sauce and fresh noodles not dried as not available

Have just turned this into a lovely soup by adding chicken stock and tsp ginger paste.
