Sticky shredded turkey bao buns

These sticky, spicy, moreish bao buns by Chris Baber and M&S are a great way to transform the flavour of your leftover turkey. Tuck in with the family while you watch a festive film.

Serves 4


  • 6 spring onions, finely sliced
  • ½ cucumber, sliced into thin strips
  • 1 red chilli, finely sliced
  • Small bunch coriander, finely chopped
  • 1 lime
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp vegetable or sunflower oil
  • 500g leftover cooked turkey, shredded
  • 1 tbsp five spice
  • 5 tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 12 M&S mini bao buns


  1. Add the spring onions, cucumber and chilli to a bowl with a squeeze of lime and a drizzle of sesame oil and toss together. Set aside to marinate.
  2. Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a high heat. Stir-fry the turkey for a few minutes until it’s beginning to crisp.
  3. Add the five spice and a splash of water to loosen. Stir-fry for 2-3 minutes, until piping hot.
  4. Add the hoisin sauce, toss together and heat through for another 2 minutes.
    Heat the buns according to the packet instructions. Spoon sticky turkey into the buns and top with the crunchy salad.
