Juicy Thai Turkey Burgers
Turkey & Chicken are lean proteins and take flavours really well. This recipe is fresh and tangy in flavour and very easy to make. You can prepare the burgers the evening before, refridgerate and cook for lunch the next day. The choice of salad or stir-fry make it versatile for lunch or dinner
Servings: 1 2 large burgers Kcals 425
200g, chicken or turkey mince meat
15g fresh coriander
1 piece of a small fiery red chilli
3g, 1/2 clove garlic
1 stalk of lemongrass
3g, grated Ginger root
10ml, 2 teaspoon soy sauce
Half a lime, juiced
150g grated carrots
Pepper, Salt, Lemon
1 spring onion, green only not the white end
5g, 1 teaspoon coconut fat
In a little blender, blitz the chilli, ginger, garlic, lemon grass (outer wall of lemongrass removed, along with top and tail) coriander with the lime juice.
Add the raw chicken or turkey and all of the ingredients into a bowl and mix well together. Use your hands to shape into 2 burgers. Place in a bowl covered with cling film in the fridge for 20 minutes or overnight allowing ingredients to marinade.
Add the coconut fat to a hot heavy-bottomed frying pan at high heat and add the burgers. Turn quickly to seal in juices on both sides and then reduce the heat to cook the burgers at a medium heat, turning frequently. I allow 10 minutes to esnure they are fully cooked though.
Serve on a bed of grated carrot seasoned with pepper, lemon juice and salt.
