Thai Turkey Burgers

Kitchen Tested
  • Yield 4 servings

Thai ingredients—soy sauce, ginger and cilantro—flavor these lower-fat turkey burgers.


Here are a few ways to brighten up the old standby burger. A splash of soy sauce, a handful of fresh basil, or some black beans and chili powder are all it takes! Top it with a zesty relish, add some chips and paper plates, and take it outside!


1 pound ground turkey (not breast)
4 green onions, minced
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
2 teaspoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons fish sauce
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
Freshly ground black pepper
4 hamburger buns


  1. Combine the turkey, green onions, cilantro, soy sauce, fish sauce, ginger and pepper in a large bowl. Shape into 4 burgers and grill, broil or pan-fry until cooked through. Place burgers on buns and serve. Serves 4.
