Jerk Turkey Burgers


Jerk Turkey Burgers – these are scrumptious.  I was introduced to some amazing Caribbean food over the weekend.  Decided to mix the flavours up for a lovely lean burger.

As you can see I served mine up with Sweet Potato Wedges, Salad, Lime Wedges and a Mango and Yoghurt Dressing

This mix makes up 8 Burgers

Macros per Burger:

Calories 231, Fat 2g, Carbs 6g, Fiber 1.2g and Protein 37.3g


  • 1kg Extra Lean Turkey Mince (I used Sainsburies 2%)
  • 4 Sprigs of Lemon Thyme
  • 1 Strong White Onion
  • 2.5 Tbsp Jerk Seasoning
  • 2 Scotch Bonnet Chillis
  • 4 Cloves of Garlic
  • 1 Tbsp Minced Ginger
  • 2 Tsp Coconut Oil

You will need:

  • Large Mixing Bowl
  • Sharp Knife
  • Vegetable Chopping Board
  • Small Frying Pan
  • Measuring Spoons
  • Burger Press
  • Griddle / Frying Pan
  • Add turkey mince to large mixing bowl

  • Finely chop your onion

  • Add to frying pan with a teaspoon of coconut oil over a medium heat

    Cook gently for 5 minutes until softened

  • Strip your lemon thyme sprigs of it’s leaves and add these to turkey in mixing bowl

  • Add your Jerk Seasoning to bowl.  I used this from the world food aisle in Sainsburies

  • Finely chop your scotch bonnet chillies

    If you would like less heat deseed them as well

  • Finely chop your garlic or put it through garlic press

  • Into mixing bowl and then add the minced ginger

  • Thoroughly mix it all together

    I do this by hand with food prep gloves on (saves chilli burn)

  • Press your burgers out

    As you can see I have divided mine up. One for fridge, one for freezer a tub to give away and two to cook

    When I bought my burger press of amazon it came with these little grease proof discs to keep the burgers separated

  • Add a teaspoon of coconut oil to your griddle over a medium to high heat

    One griddle is hot add burger and cook for 5 minutes either side

    Alternatively you could cook in oven on 180C Conventional 160C Fan for 25 minutes
