  • 1/3 cup fresh lime juice (from about 2 limes)
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • 1-2 tablespoons fish sauce to taste
  • 1 tablespoon Tamari (or soy sauce)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sriracha sauce
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound ground turkey breast organic if available
  • 4 ounces white or baby bella mushrooms stems removed, minced
