Prep Time

These turkey burgers are pummeled with olives, dried dill and red onion and served with a zingy tomato salsa for a real burst of Mediterranean flavour. The brininess from the olives acts as a seasoning, so there's no need for extra salt in the burgers.

Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Mediterranean Turkey Salsa Burgers

Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C (fan)/ 425°F/ Gas 7

Cut the potatoes (skins on) into bite-size pieces

Add them to a baking tray, drizzle with 1-2 tbsp olive oil and season generously with salt and pepper

2 Mediterranean Turkey Salsa Burgers

Place the tray in the oven for 25 min or until golden and crisp

Meanwhile, peel and finely dice the onion[s]

Quarter the cherry tomatoes

Chop the basil finely, including the stalks

3 Mediterranean Turkey Salsa Burgers

Chop the capers roughly

Chop the olives roughly

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

4 Mediterranean Turkey Salsa Burgers

Add half of the red onion (save the rest for the next step) to a medium sized mixing bowl

Add the tomatoes, basil, capers, red wine vinegar and 2 tbsp [4 tbsp] olive oil - this is your salsa

Season with salt and plenty of pepper

Check on your potatoes before continuing

5 Mediterranean Turkey Salsa Burgers

Combine the remaining red onion, olives, garlic, turkey mince and dried dill in a large mixing bowl, mixing well

Divide and shape into 2 [4] burgers (approx. 2cm thick)

6 Mediterranean Turkey Salsa Burgers

Heat a wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] vegetable oil over a medium-high heat

Once hot, add the burgers and cook for 3 min on each side or until browned

Tip: Try not to fiddle with the burgers too soon, you want to seal them for flipping- this helps them stay together

7 Mediterranean Turkey Salsa Burgers

Once browned, transfer the burgers to a baking tray

Add the ciabatta to the other side

Place the tray in the oven for 7-8 min, or until the burgers are cooked through but still moist and the ciabattas warmed
