Prep Time10 minsCook Time5 minsTotal Time15 mins

 1 8-10 inch baguette, toasted
 1 cup cooked turkey meat, chopped
 1 tsp soy sauce
 2 tbsp water
 1 tsp fish sauce
 1 tsp brown sugar
 2 tbsp mayonnaise
 1 tbsp sriracha
 Shredded carrots
 Shredded cucumber
 Sliced red onion
 Sliced peppers
 Pickled jalapenos (optional)
 Fresh cilantro
 Salt and pepper

1

In a small pot, simmer the turkey with the water, soy sauce, fish sauce, and brown sugar. Just simmer these ingredients over medium-low heat until the turkey has absorbed all those flavors.

Whatever you do, don’t leave out the fish sauce! It’s the most important ingredient.

While the turkey is simmering, you can prepare the other toppings for your Turkey Banh Mi. I used some shredded carrot, cucumber, onions, and peppers that I had. It wouldn’t take long to shred a few crunchy veggies though if you don’t have any left over.

You can use a box grater to make quick work of them and then just toss them with a few tablespoons of rice wine vinegar and a pinch of salt to quickly pickle them. Because they are so thin, you only need to let them sit for a few minutes.

Other toppings you’ll need:

Sriracha mayo, cilantro, jalapenos.

Stir a tablespoon of Sriracha into a few tablespoons of mayo. Done deal.

Slice your baguette in half and then toast it in a hot oven until it’s nicely browned.
Slather it with the sriracha mayo and pile with your simmered turkey, shredded veggies, pickled jalapenos and a few sprigs of cilantro.
