I had better put this recipe up as I spoke about it on Clare FM last Thursday and have had a few people ask again for the recipe. The recipe also appears in the book under the 'Lunch' section.
It has been busy times of late but finally getting my mojo back and getting into the kitchen experimenting, perfecting and snapping again. There are more things in the 'pipeline'.... if this pipeline gets any longer the county council will be looking me to get planning permission!!! But, it is a good complaint that people, businesses and corporations are interested in me and what I am doing. Bring it all on, the more the merrier!!
Thai-Style Turkey Burgers
Turkey is the leanest of meats, so using turkey mince can wipe some of the guilt free of having a very tasty succulent burgers for lunch.
Makes 4 large burgers:
4 spring onions
1 red chilli
A thumb-sized piece of peeled ginger
400g turkey mince
A small bunch of coriander leaves
50ml of rapeseed oil
Crusty bread baps
Fresh salad leaves
Sweet chilli sauce to serve
Thinly slice the spring onions, de-seed and slice the chilli and grate the ginger.
In a large mixing bowl add the turkey mince, spring onions, ginger, chilli, coriander and oil. Now get in there with clean hands and start scrunching everything together until really well combined.
Divide the mix into 4 and using clean hands form 4 burgers. Place them on an oiled baking tray or plate, cover with clingfilm and refrigerate for an hour to ‘firm up’. This will ensure they keep shape and don’t fall apart when grilling.
Grill the burgers on just higher than medium heat for about 6-8 mins either side ensuring they are cooked through. Serve in some fresh crusty baps with in season salad leaves and a generous dollop of sweet chilli sauce.
