This recipe comes from a Food & Wine magazine loaned to me by a friend! A 'grilling issue'. She must have seen my burning plank post and decided I needed some tips, tout suit, for next September cooking classes! I perused the recipes- a good issue- by the way, and found this little burger waiting for me to try!
I had a bag of Scallops in the freezer from Picard, the local frozen food store......had some frozen corn buried as well! Don't turn your nose up at these frosty ingredients, this was an easy preparation dinner, ok!!
You wiz everything in the food processor and leave to firm up in the fridge. Should I tell my trainer about this method of firming up?? Knowing Ms. K......she'll just smile sweetly at my joke and make me do another 12 reps of something that I hate!! We have a close relationship!
Now, let me tell you, I had my doubts that these little fat-free marvels would hold together on the grill, but they did, and they were wonderful! They were fat-free until I stuck a couple strips of bacon on the burger and then made a delightful combo of mayo, sambal Oelek, a big squirt of Sriracha Chili Sauce and a squeeze of Sweet Chili Sauce. MMMMMMMM......my version of secret sauce.
What this burger lacks in visual appeal it gives a big bang for the buck in taste! From start to finish the burgers don't look appetizing, but the taste....wow.....the taste. This is worth a try!
