Ginger Sesame Turkey Burgers

by Caren McSherry
Super juicy, super flavourful, and so simple to make.


  • 1lb ground turkey
  • 3 green onions, finely sliced
  • 1 Tbsp fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 Tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 1 Tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tsp minced fermented black beans
  • 1 tsp chili flakes
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ½ cup black sesame seeds
  • 1-2 Tbsp peanut oil or vegetable oil, for frying


1. In a large, bowl, add ground turkey, green onions, ginger, garlic, sesame oil, hoisin sauce, fish sauce, black beans, chili flakes, and salt. Mix well.
2. Shape the turkey mixture into six patties, and then dip both sides of each patty into the sesame seeds.
3. Heat a small amount of peanut oil in a non-stick skillet. When the oil is hot, fry the burgers for about 5 minutes per side, turning once, or until the burgers are cooked through (a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the burger should read 165 F / 74 C).
4. Serve on a bun garnished with arugula or on a bed of steamed Chinese greens, like bok choy.
- TIP: If grilling the burgers, cook over medium coals for 4 to 5 minutes per side or until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part reads 165F/74C.

- Serves: 6 | Prep time: 10 minutes | Cooking Time: 10 minutes
