Thai Curry Turkey Burgers

  • It's like the chicken and the egg question. Am I slacking on the blog because I have been repeating, or am i repeating because I have been slacking either reason, the family is happy.  These haven't. Even made in a while and I was interested to see if they where as good after a year and a half of new food. It so good!  It might even have been better. The combo of the red thai curry and turkey is wonderful!

  • Thai Curry Turkey Burgers
  • 1-1/4 lb. ground turkey (not ground turkey breast)
  • 2 Tbs. red or green Thai curry paste
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Vegetable oil, for the grill
  • 1 medium lime
  • 2/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 3/4 cup thinly sliced seedless cucumber
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 small shallot, thinly sliced
  • 1 Tbs. seasoned rice vinegar
  • 4 sesame seed hamburger buns
  • Sliced tomato, for serving
Prepare a medium gas or charcoal grill fire.
In a medium bowl, gently mix the turkey, curry paste, and 1/4 tsp. each salt and pepper with your hands just until blended. Form the mixture into four 1/2-inch-thick patties.
Oil the grill grate. Grill the burgers, flipping once, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the centers of the burgers registers 165°F, 12 to 15 minutes total.
While the burgers cook, finely grate 1 tsp. zest from the lime, then squeeze the lime to yield 1 Tbs. juice. In a small bowl, combine the zest and juice, mayonnaise, and 1/4 tsp. salt. In another small bowl, toss the cucumber with the cilantro, shallot, and vinegar.
Toast the buns cut side down on the grill until browned and heated through, 1 to 2 minutes.
Spread the tops and bottoms of the buns with the mayonnaise. Serve the burgers in the buns, topped with a slice of tomato and the cucumber mixture.
