Recipe by Dan Cruickshank. This Californian inspired burger created by Dan Cruickshank is a burger game changer. 

Preparation: 10 mins 
Cooking: 4 mins
Ingredients
  • 2 sheets of parchment paper
  • 250g Mince Lamb - (ask your butcher to mince the fatty shoulder of lamb for you)
  • Brioche buns

Pickled onion relish – allow one hour to infuse

  • 1 white onion
  • 1 tsp of turmeric
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp black sesame seeds
  • pinch of cumin seeds
  • 75ml vinegar.

Anchovy mayo

  • 2 large spoons of mayo
  • Some diced anchovy fillets and a dash of brine
  • Squeeze of lemon
Method
  • 250g Mince Lamb (ask your butcher to mince the fatty shoulder of lamb for you)
  • Place a 125g rough ball of mince between 2 sheets of parchment paper. And press down to flatten out. In a hot pan or grill, place your smash burger. Cook 4 minutes each side with a pinch of salt.
  • For the pickled onion I use 1 large white onion. In a plastic bowl I add the thinly sliced onion, 1 tsp of turmeric, 2 tsp sugar, 1 tsp black sesame seeds, pinch of cumin seeds and 75ml vinegar.
  • Allow to infuse for at least an hour to get a vivid yellow colour.
  • Anchovy mayo. Couple large spoons of mayo. Some diced anchovy fillets and a dash of its juice. Squeeze of lemon and mix it up. A tiny glass jar of anchovies is always good to keep in a cupboard. And lamb and anchovies are a combination that’s works great.
  • To assemble, have a good brioche bun slightly warmed not toasted. Good slather of the mayo on both buns. Depending on your mood or hunger you can add a second patty of meat. Top with smashed avocado and your pickled onion. Top your burger and present.
