These delicious burgers have an Asian twist to them, and are absolutely oozing yumminess! Tonight they were served on a slim style bun, but can be enjoyed on a regular bun as well. For an appetizer, make the patties small and serve on individual lettuce leaves.
The dipping sauce makes these burgers particularly delicious, make sure to have napkins handy, and lean over your plate.
1 pound (450 grams ish) lean ground pork
1 bag of frozen RAW prawns (around the same weight as the pork), chopped in small but identifiable pieces
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 heaping tbsp fresh ginger, minced
2 tbsp. soya sauce
2 tbsp. sesame oil
1/4 cup finely sliced chives
In a large bowl mix up the eggs, garlic, ginger, soy sauce and sesame oil. Gently toss in the pork, prawns and chives.
Form patties, and allow to rest in the fridge to set up.
Either grill or cook on hot griddle. These are delicate, so make sure not to try and turn or rotate until they are well cooked on the first side.
Serve on a toasted bun with aioli on the bottom, and pickled cucumbers on top. To take this on to the most delicious burger, be sure to serve with the dipping sauce.
