Turkey Burgers

The nicest thing about these turkey burgers was the salsa that accompanied them. They would have been a little bland on their own, unless you smother them in tomato ketchup as the kids did. They were quick to make, relatively healthy using turkey mince and a good midweek meal. The recipe is from Olive Magazine this month, I served it with some frozen potato wedges.

Ingredients
Serves 4
400g of turkey mince or lean chicken
1 tsp cumin
1 red onion, ½ grated and ½ finely chopped
1 lime, zested and juiced
½ a small bunch of coriander
1 small avocado diced
4 ciabatta rolls halved and toasted 
2 tomatoes diced
some little gem lettuce leaves

Method
Put the mince, grated onion, cumin and lime zest in a bowl. Chop half of the coriander and add to the bowl with lots of seasoning. Mix well and form into 4 burgers. Grill or fry for 4-5 minutes on each side or until cooked through. Mix the chopped onion, rest of the coriander, avocado, and tomato with the lime juice. Fill the rolls with lettuce then the burgers and top with the salsa.
