Healthy Recipe: Teriyaki Turkey Burger with Wasabi Mayonnaise


A healthy eating food, turkey is very lean protein which provides essential amino acids, niacin, and phosphorous. However, I confess that I sometimes get bored with turkey, so I was happy to come across today’s teriyaki version! This healthy recipe from BC Turkey Growers turns an otherwise bland burger into a spicy, tangy, and textured turkey meal.  And there’s just one word for the wasabi mayonnaise: WOW!

Make 6 servings

1-1/2 lbs  ground turkey
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tbsp  fresh ginger, grated
1/4 cup  thick teriyaki sauce
3  green onions, finely chopped
1/4 cup  toasted sesame seeds
1/2 cup  dry bread crumbs
1/2 cup  light mayonnaise
1 tsp  wasabi paste

In a large bowl, combine ground turkey, garlic, ginger, teriyaki sauce, green onions, sesame seeds and bread crumbs.Shape into 6 burger patties. Broil or grill burgers 4 – 6 inches (10 – 15cm) from broiler or over medium-hot coals for 10 12 minutes turning once. Meanwhile, mix together mayonnaise and wasabi paste; spread on 6 lightly toasted burger buns. Place cooked burgers in buns. Serve with sliced cucumber and watercress or arugula.
