Moroccan-Spiced Lamb Burgers with Beet, Red Onion, and Grapefruit Salsa

July 28, 2011

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of burgers. Simple, yet delicious. A paleo-compliant comfort food (once you toss the bun). And one of the few remaining fast foods that I’ll eat. But, as with most things, it never tastes quite as good as when made from scratch at home. Since skipping the bun can make your plate feel bare, I usually try to incorporate some sort of sauce or topping to make it more exciting. This recipe for Moroccan-spiced lamb burgers with salsa from Epicrious fit the bill. There are a medley of flavours, and it looks pretty to boot. Definitely not a boring burger.

Modifications: Grapefruit instead of orange. Mint raita instead of mayo. Skip the non-stick spray.

I haven’t tried lamb yet… I think I may have to expand my horizons & give it a go! Any suggestions on what cut to buy (I’ll buy free-range organic) & how to cook it?

You should totally try lamb! It’s a really healthy source of protein, and a great way to add variety to your diet (I find myself relying on beef and chicken too much). Honestly, if it’s your first time trying lamb, I’d keep it simple. How about lamb burgers? http://www.theprimalist.com/curried-lamb-burgers-and-mint-raita/
