Lamb & Kawakawa Herb Burgers with Caramelised Pineapple & Asian Slaw

Method

Remove Silver Fern Farms Lamb and Kawakawa Herb Burgers from the fridge and packaging and allow to bloom for 10 minutes at room temperature.

Combine the lime juice, palm sugar and fish sauce in a medium bowl.

Add pineapple, stir to coat then set aside to marinate while preparing the remaining ingredients.

Place red or green cabbage, carrot, spring onions and coriander in a bowl.

In another bowl, combine the Japanese mayonnaise, wasabi, lime zest and juice.

Preheat a barbecue to high heat. Brush burgers with olive oil then cook for 3½ minutes each side, or until cooked through (cook for 4 minutes each side if cooking on the stovetop).

Cover loosely on a plate to rest for 5 minutes.

Barbecue, chargrill or pan-fry the pineapple for 3-4 minutes until golden and tender, turning frequently.

To serve, combine  slaw and dressing. Place a burger onto each toasted bun base. Top with a slice of grilled pineapple and some slaw.

Sprinkle with crispy shallots and top with a toasted bun top.
