This is a Thai dish using a (modified) recipe I found online. A friend asked me to make it for her, but I've never had it before so I don't know if it tastes the way it should. Has a really tart taste, but I find it grows on you. Ground turkey could be substituted with any other ground meat. Makes ten 1/4-cup servings.

Recipe Ingredients for Laab (Thai meat salad)

1 lb ground turkey
1/2 cup shallots (6 shallots, chopped)

1 tbsp water
1 tbsp cayenne
3 tbsp hot chili powder
