Whisk together the lime juice, fish sauce, Sriracha sauce, soy sauce, and Agave nectar to make the stir-fry sauce.
Cut the onion into thin slivers.
Cut the red bell pepper into strips.
Peel and slice the garlic very thinly.
Heat the wok or large heavy frying pan over medium-high heat for about 1 minute before you add the oil.
Then add the 1 tablespoon of olive oil and the sesame oil, heat about 45 seconds (or until it looks shimmery).
Add the garlic cloves, and cook the garlic just until it’s fragrant. When you smell garlic (less than one minute) remove the garlic and set aside.
Add the onion slivers and bell pepper strips to the wok and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes (just until they’re starting to soften), then remove to a bowl with the reserved garlic.
Add the other teaspoon of oil if it seem like you need it.
Then add the ground turkey and stir-fry 5 minutes, breaking apart with a turner as it cooks.
Cook the turkey until any liquid evaporates completely and the turkey is starting to get lightly browned.
Add the vegetables back into the wok, stirring to combine with the meat, and cook about 1 minute.
Add the chopped basil and cook about 1 minute more, just until the basil starts to wilt.
Then add the stir-fry sauce, except for 2 tablespoons of it (to mix with the corn starch) and stir to distribute it in the meat/veggie mixture.
Cook about 2 minutes more, until the whole dish is hot.
Add corn starch to cold reserved sauce mixture and stir to make a slurry. Add to meat mixture and stir in to thicken. Cook 1 minute, then serve. I like to serve it over cooked rice.
*I use my Very Low Sodium Soy Sauce Substitute, recipe #5145, to lower the sodium since the fish sauce has so much.
