  • 500g turkey mince
  • 85g fresh breadcrumbs
  • 3 tbsp red Thai curry paste (2 tbsp if you are using an authentic hot Thai brand
  • ½ bunch spring onion finely chopped
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • mango pickle mayo
  • Spicy mango salsa
  • 4 ciabatta rolls, split
  • handful Baby Gem lettuce leaves
  • ½ cucumber, peeled and sliced
  • 4 ripe tomatoes, sliced


  1. Place mince, breadcrumbs, curry paste, spring onions and egg into a large bowl. Season lightly, then mix well with your hands to combine. Divide into 4 and shape into burgers. Chill for 20 mins.

  2. Meanwhile, make the salsa and mayo. Brush the burgers with oil and grill for 7 mins each side, or until firm, golden and cooked through. Alternatively, cook on the barbecue.

  3. Once cooked, toast the rolls, cut-side up, under the grill. To serve, top the rolls with a turkey burger, add lettuce, cucumber, tomato slices and a spoonful of mayo or salsa and put the lids on.
