I would feed it moderately to encourage new growth, and see how much sprouts out again. Once that happens, just cut off anything that isn't sprouting vigorously. Just how much sprouts is going to depend on how much damage it had, as well as what kind of "Laurel" it is--there are several very different plants sold under that name.
