Ingredients

Lamb and harissa burgers

  • 500g of lamb mince
  • 3 tbsp of harissa
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp fennel seeds
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 handful of breadcrumbs
  • 1 handful of coriander leaves, chopped
  • 1 handful of mint leaves, chopped
  • 1 handful of parsley leaves, chopped

To serve

  • 4 brioche buns
  • 1 handful of rocket
  • 1 handful of coriander leaves
  • 1 handful of mint leaves
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 lemon
  • pepperoncini

Method

1
Combine all of the burger ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Take a pinch of the mince and fry off in a hot pan so you can taste and adjust the seasoning and spice levels to your liking
2
Form the mixture into four even-sized patties
3
Cook the burgers for 4–5 minutes on each side in a smoking hot griddle pan or on the barbecue, finishing in the oven for a few minutes if necessary
4
Place the rocket in a bowl with the herbs and lightly dress with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and a squeeze of lemon
5
Serve the burgers in brioche buns with the herb salad and condiments of your choosing – something creamy like mayonnaise or plain yoghurt goes well with the spicy harissa
