Ingredients
  • ½ cup papaya, diced
  • 1 cup mango, diced
  • ¾ cup onion finely chopped, divided
  • ½ cup green pepper, finely chopped, divided
  • 2 Tbsp. cilantro, fresh, chopped (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
  • ½ cup uncooked quick oats or Panko crumbs
  • ⅓ cup ketchup
  • 1 Tbsp. jerk seasoning, Jamaican-variety
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 pound uncooked ground turkey
Directions
  1. To prepare salsa, combine papaya, mango, ¼ cup each of red onion and green pepper, cilantro and lime juice in a medium bowl; set aside. (Note: You can make the salsa up to 1 day in advance.)
  2. To prepare burgers, combine remaining ½ cup of red onion, remaining ¼ cup of green pepper, oats or Panko crumbs, ketchup, jerk seasoning and egg in a large bowl; mix until well combined. Add turkey; mix thoroughly. Divide turkey mixture into 4 equal portions and shape each portion into a 1-inch-thick patty; cover and refrigerate for a minimum of 20 minutes.
  3. Preheat broiler. Broil burgers until cooked through, flipping once, about 16 -20 minutes total. Serve each with about a heaping ⅓ cup of salsa.
Notes
These Caribbean-inspired burgers also taste great made with ground chicken breast or extra-lean ground beef. Trim prep time by making the fruity salsa a day in advance
