Larb: A Delicious Thai-style Salad

GNMHealth's picture
Larb is a deliciously addictive salad from Thailand that combines meat (here, chicken) with greens, toasted grains and a wonderful dressing.
Ingredients
  Red chili 2 , sliced
  Lemongrass stalk 1 , sliced
  Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm), crushed
  Chicken thigh 1 2857⁄10000 Pound (600 gram)
  Fish sauce 2 Tablespoon
  Chili sauce 4 Tablespoon
  Shallots 2 , sliced
  Lime 1 (zest and juice)
  Coriander 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs) (cilantro)
  Mint 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  White rice 1 Tablespoon
  Raw peanuts 1 1⁄2 Tablespoon
  Lettuce 1 (to serve)
Directions

Place the chicken in a food processor and pulse until a rough mince is formed.
Heat a wok over a high heat and oil if required. Saute the garlic and chilli for 20 seconds, then brown the chicken, stirring occasionally. This should take about 5 or 6 minutes.
In a small mixing bowl combine the fish sauce, chilli sauce and lime zest and juice and adjust flavours to taste.
In a dry frying pan or skillet toast the rice until golden. Repeat with the peanuts.
Using a pestle and mortar, or spice grinder, grind the rice to a rough powder, set aside. Roughly chop or crush the peanuts.
In a large mixing bowl combine the cooked chicken, sauce, rice, nuts and chopped herbs and toss.
Serve on a bed of lettuce.
