1.) Steam squash in a steamer basket set in a pot of simmering water until tender, 6–8 minutes. Let cool slightly. Heat 1/2 Tbsp. oil in a large skillet and cook squash, turning occasionally, until browned, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
2.) Heat remaining 1/2 Tbsp. oil in the same skillet, add extra lean ground meat, and cook, breaking into large pieces and stirring occasionally until browned and cooked through, about 5 minutes. Add scallions, garlic, chile, and ginger and cook, stirring often, just until softened, about 2 minutes. Add squash, lime juice, fish sauce; toss to combine.
