  • 1 tablespoon freshly chopped coriander or mint
  • Grated zest and juice of ½ lemon

  1. In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients together.
  2. Using slightly damp hands shape the mixture into 4 x 9cm burgers.  Cover and chill in the fridge for 20 minutes.
  3. Cook the burgers on a prepared barbecue or preheated moderate grill for 6-8 minutes on each side until cooked and any meat juices run clear.
  4. Serve the burgers in a burger bun with a salad garnish and a selection of relishes.

Tips:

As an alternative, shape with mince mixture into mini meatballs or koftas, mould onto small metal skewers then cook as required and serve as mini kebabs.
