I made this Thai inspired mince mix before and just had it with rice which is the original way of having it, then Jeremy suggested that I cook it up again and have it with wraps. So tonight, I made wraps for dinner! I'll be writing up the recipe also, to share with you all because this mix is just so easy, full of taste and is so versatile!
2 teaspoons Olive Oil (I used extra virgin)
1 large red onion, thinly sliced
750g chicken mince (I used Beef)
1/4 cup sweet chilli sauce
2 tablespoon fish sauce
2 tablespoon lemon juice (I used half a lemon)
3 teaspoons brown sugar
* the original recipe also had 1 bunch coriander & steamed baby pak choy to serve
Lettuce (we used a salad mix of lettuce & red cabbage)
fresh avocado (packed, from cold salad section)
- Heat oil in a large pan over medium heat.
- Add onion. Cook, stirring occasionally for around 3 minutes or until onions are soft.
- *Cut roots ends of coriander and finely chop. Remove leaves and set aside. Add chopped coriander to mince.
- Add mince. Cook, stirring with a wooden spoon (I used a normal serving spoon) to break mince, for about 10 minutes or until browned.
- Add sweet chilli sauce, fish sauce, lemon juice and sugar. Stir to combine. Cook for 5 minutes, until heated through.
- Spread wrap in a tablespoon of sour cream (more/less depending on how much you want)
- Spread 1/2 tablespoon of avocado on top of sour cream (more/less depending on how much you want)
- Cut cherry tomatoes into 4 slices, each piece. Place them around your wrap in 3 lines.
- Grab a handful of the lettuce mix & spread it on top of tomatoes.
- Get two serving spoonfuls of mince mix and spread on top of lettuce mix.
- Add cheese on top (depending on your tastes)
- Wrap it up, by folding the top and bottom together, then the sides together.
(You can make your wrap anyway you like.. this is just how I did it).
I hope you guys get the opportunity to make this dish or even just try out the mince mix with rice or any other way you like. I would say this will be the recipe I'll be following by from now on when I make wraps. Jeremy absolutely loved it.. he even got seconds and said "omg, this is the best"! haha
