Asian Turkey Burgers with Sesame Mayo Recipe - South Beach Diet Recipe (Phase 2)


Prep time: 20 minutes
Start to finish: 35 minutes
To make ahead: Prepare through Step 2. Wrap patties individually and refrigerate for up to 8 hours or freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw in the refrigerator before cooking.
Degree of difficulty: Easy


  • 2 slices whole-wheat sandwich bread, crusts removed, torn into pieces
  • 3/4 pound lean ground turkey breast
  • One 8-ounce can sliced water chestnuts, rinsed and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 2 scallions, trimmed and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 11/2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup Sesame Mayonnaise (see recipe)


  • Heat grill to medium-high.
  • Place bread in a food processor and pulse into fine crumbs. Transfer to a large bowl.
  • Add ground turkey, water chestnuts, hoi sin, scallions, ginger, garlic and salt; mix well. (The mixture will be moist.)
  • Divide the mixture into four equal portions. Form into 1/2-inch-thick patties (see Tip).
  • Oil grill rack (See Grilling Tip). Brush patties with sesame oil.
  • Grill until browned and no longer pink in the center (165F), about 5 minutes per side.
  • Meanwhile, prepare Sesame Mayonnaise to serve with the burgers.

Tip: When forming burger patties, make them thinner at the center to prevent them from steaming as they cook.

Ingredient Note: Hoi sin sauce is a dark brown, thick, spicy-sweet sauce made with soybeans and a complex mix of spices. Look for it in the Chinese section of your supermarket, and in Asian groceries.
Grilling Tip: Oil the grill rack just before cooking. The grill should already be heated and the coals or burners adjusted for the correct temperature. Oil a folded paper towel. Hold it with tongs and pull it toward you over the rack. Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill.
