Asian Turkey Burgers with Avocado and Sriracha Lime Mayonnaise

Amazing. I seriously love these burgers. I found this recipe on Tracey’s Culinary Adventures. The turkey was juicy and tender and it tasted great with a thick slice of tomato and avocado along with mixed greens. I think one of the main stars of the show was the sriracha lime mayonnaise – the flavor combination was awesome with the burger! My husband really loved these burgers and the kids thought they were pretty good too. I served them with a cucumber salad and Asian Quinoa Salad for a delicious and healthy meal.

Side Note: Make sure to use ground turkey with dark & white meat not plain ground turkey breast. The burgers will be juicy and more flavorful.

Combine the garlic, ginger, green onions, cilantro, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, and sesame oil to a large bowl and stir to combine. Add the ground turkey and use your hands to gently mix. Divide the mixture into 6 balls then form each one into a patty.

Prepare the sriracha lime mayonnaise by combining the mayonnaise, sriracha, lime zest, and lime juice together in a bowl. Mix until well combined. Set aside.

Heat a large grill pan coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Cook the burgers for about 4 minutes per side, or until they are cooked through.

Place the burger on a bun with a bit of spicy mayonnaise on it. Top the burgers with a little more of the spicy mayo, tomatoes, mixed greens, and avocado followed by the other bun. Serve immediately. Enjoy.

    Never see ground turkey here for sale but I can always do my own. I will try the burgers and serve them with some salad instead of the buns, we do not eat a lot of bread except French baguettes :-) Have a good weekend Diane

    Made these for dinner Sunday night. So easy and extremely flavorful. Your blog has become my go to source for dinner/meal inspiration at least once a week ( if not more).

    I’m thinking that Sriracha lime mayo would go so great with a plethora of other foods too.

    These were great! I realized I did not have any mayo, so I just used sriracha and it was very good. Will definitely make again. Husband loved them too…..and he was very skeptical of turkey burgers.

    I don’t know how I stumbled upon this website BUT I made these burgers for dinner last night and they were out-of-this-world good! I omitted the green onion and sesame oil from the turkey burger mixture because I didn’t have either and the patties were still bursting with flavor. Thank you!
