Looking for a little inspiration in the kitchen? We’ve got you covered with a Destination Asia recipe from Laos. Each week we’ll bring you a new recipe idea from another country in our network, finishing the series with an 11 recipe Destination Asia Cook Book – all presented in a nice front and back covered PDF for you to download and keep!
This week we’re cooking up the national dish of Laos; a minced meat salad, known locally as ‘laap’. Laap, sometimes spelt larb, is either cooked or served raw and marinated in fish sauce, citrus and chili peppers. The meat base of laap can be pork, fish, beef or duck, while vegetarian laap contains tofu or mushrooms. It’s served with toasted rice and eaten at room temperature with sticky rice or in a lettuce wrap.
