2 limes, cut into wedges
Heat a wok or large pan, add the oil and then the ginger, lemongrass, garlic and chilli, cook for 1 minute over a medium heat.
Increase the heat and add the turkey mince and let it go golden brown on the bottom before breaking it up with a wooden spoon.
When thoroughly cooked, add the spring onions, Canderel, fish sauce, lime juice and soy sauce, stir again, then take off the heat, add the coriander or basil leaves to the mixture.
Turn into a serving bowl, then serve with the lettuce leaves to scoop up the mince and lime wedges to squeeze over.
