Burgers and salad are such a summer staple but I'm just not a fan of the standard burger. So tonight, I made seafood burgers with some marinara mix I found lurking in the freezer. I made some basic grainy burger buns and added chopped, fresh corinader during the final knead. I served the burgers in the bread with avocado and a mayonnaise with some lime juice stirred through. With a garden salad on the side.
Although I made these in the thermomix, a food processor would certainly suffice.
2 cloves garlic
1cm piece ginger
500g good quality marinara mix
1 tablespoon sherry
2 tablespoons peanuts
2 tablespoons rice flour
12 cup bread crumbs
2 spring onions, finely sliced
1. Chop the garlic and ginger on speed 7 for 5 seconds.
2. Add all other ingredients, except spring onions and chop for 10 seconds on speed 6
3. Add spring onion and blend for 5 seconds on speed 3
4. Heat a little oil in a frypan, spoon in and spread to 1 cm thick. Cook for 2 minutes on each side.
