Harissa spiced lamb burger

By April 02, 2021 ,

Lamb has always been a favourite meat of mine, paired with harissa it makes a wonderful combination. The sweet punchy hit of the harissa perfectly compliments the heady lamb flavour. I also like to use spices such as cinnamon, ginger and cumin which give that extra earthy base note of flavours bringing the taste level up a notch for this burger. 

300g lamb shoulder finely minced, ensure there is some fat in the meat otherwise the burgers will dry out
30g harissa paste
15g finely chopped fresh coriander
10g finely chopped spring onion
1 clove garlic grated
3g ground cinnamon
5g roughly ground cumin seeds
2g freshly ground black pepper
3g ground ginger
3g celery salt

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl until well combined
Cover with cling film and leave in the fridge overnight for the flavours to infuse
Form into burgers, this mix should make enough for four
Set your barbecue up for direct cooking at 210c, cast iron griddle if you have one
Grill, flipping every minute or so until the burgers reach 54c internal temp
Serve in flatbreads or pita breads with cumin cheese, red onion and tzatziki
