Tasty Thai Turkey Burger Recipe

I cooked these tasty Thai turkey burgers tonight and they were a winner! It had been a drizzly rainy day but these burgers brought a little bit of sunshine into our house at dinner time as they were packed with flavour. Here's how you make them and they take no time at all - bonus!

Ingredients (makes 5 burgers)

500g turkey mince
1 red chili chopped finely
1 handful of chopped coriander
1 teaspoon of grated fresh ginger
4 spring onions, chopped finely
1 egg yolk
salt and pepper
olive oil

To serve:
Lime and Chilli Mayonnaise (mix a couple of tablespoons of Mayo with a couple of teaspoons of lime juice and a tiny bit of lazy chili)
Salad Leaf


- Mix all ingredients together and make into 5 patties

- Heat olive oil in a frying pan
- Fry burgers - approx 5 - 6 minutes each side 

- Place in your ciabatta with some delicious lime and chili mayonnaise and a bit of salad

I love Thai food, so these are a bit of a western take on typical Thai flavours. The ginger and the chili make the turkey taste more robust. I think if I were to do them again I would probably do them accompanied with a satay mayo. They would also be brilliant on the barbecue, so when summer decides to pop back to Surrey then I'll be ready to unleash these!

I'd love to know if you try this recipe and what you think of it and if you want any other ideas on what to do with turkey then try the Lean on Turkey site! Turkey is a really versatile and easily affordable meaty option, try it and see what you think. If you fancy trying another of my turkey recipes look at my Turkey Enchiladas.
