  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 6 slider buns, lightly toasted
  • 1 cup cilantro

  • kewpie mayo, to taste
  • 1 cup julienned carrots
  • 1 cup julienned daikon

  • 1/2 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper

Make the pickles: put the carrots and daikon into a bowl and sprinkle on the salt and sugar. After 15 minutes, rinse off the pickles, drain well and place in the fridge until ready to assemble.

In a bowl, throughly mix the turkey, lemongrass, garlic, fish sauce and pepper. Divide evenly into 6 patties and gently shape.

Heat your barbecue to medium high heat. Brush the grill with oil and grill for 5-6 minutes, flip and grill for another 4-5 minutes, or until cooked through (165°F).

Build your burger: smear a bit of mayo on the top and bottom bun. Top with a turkey patty, slices of jalapeno, the carrot and daikon pickles, cilantro, and the top bun. Enjoy!
