  • 1 tsp. Coconut flour
  • 1 tsp. Oil
  • 1 Small shallot, thinly sliced
  • 1 lb. Ground chicken thighs
  • ½ lb. Large shrimp, peeled and chopped coarsely
  • 2 tbsp. Asian fish sauce
  • 2 tbsp. Fresh lime juice
  • ½ tsp. Cayenne pepper
  • 2 Scallions, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup Chopped cilantro
  • ¼ cup Minced fresh mint leaves
  • 1 Head butter lettuce, washed and spun dry, and separated into leaves


  • On a parchment-lined baking tray, toast the coconut flour in a 300°F oven for 5 to 7 minutes or until the flour turns golden brown. (You can also toast the coconut flour in a dry pan over low heat instead.) Set aside.
  • In the meantime, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sliced shallot and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes or until softened.
  • Add the ground chicken, and break it up with a spatula. Cook, stirring, for 3 to 5 minutes until no longer pink.
  • Add the shrimp and stir-fry for another 2 to 3 minutes or until the shrimp is cooked through.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and add the fish sauce, lime juice, toasted coconut flour, and cayenne pepper. Adjust the seasoning to taste.
  • Sprinkle the chopped herbs on top. To eat, wrap a 1/3 cup of laap in a lettuce leaf and devour.
