Turkey fillet burger with guacamole and salsa

Turkey fillet burger with guacamole and salsa


  1. Cut the turkey breast steaks into thirds.
  2. Lay between 2 pieces of cling film and flatten slightly with a meat mallet or rolling pin.
  3. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Dip each piece into the egg and then press well into the panko crumbs to coat.

  4. Meanwhile, place the avocado, chives and half the lime juice in a bowl and mash with a fork. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

  5. Squeeze the tomatoes over the sink to discard the seeds and juice. Tear the squashed tomatoes and place into a bowl with the onion, chilli, coriander and remaining lime juice.
  6. Stir to combine and season with salt and pepper, to taste.

  7. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over high heat. Fry the turkey pieces for 1-2 mins on each side, until golden and cooked through.
  8. Remove from the pan and drain well on kitchen paper.

  9. Place the rocket on the base of the roll, top with turkey pieces and tomato salsa.
  10. Spread the guacamole on the remaining halves of the rolls and place on top of the salsa. Serve.
