Notes about this recipe

    I used ground pork instead of ground turkey (only because I bought the wrong thing) and used 2 serrano chillies (the recipe calls for just one) and it was still a big hit. Very easy to prepare if you use the mini-food processor as suggested to make the paste.

    Loved these. Make a paste of lemongrass, garlic, shallots, ginger, serrano pepper and fish sauce and then mix it with ground turkey. Let sit at least an hour (I let mine sit about 8 hours) and then grill (we had to grill ours much longer than the 10-12 minutes given in the book). Meanwhile make a sauce of fish sauce, lime juice, sugar, salt and red pepper flakes. Drizzle on the bottom of the bun, put the cooked burger on that, then add fresh herbs (we used cilantro and mint - basil is also an option) and drizzle a bit more of the sauce.
