This is such a delicious recipe. The spice of the burgers and the sweet potato fries- YUM

I made this yesterday. I used minced chicken for the burgers, swapped the buns for grilled pitta bread, added steamed corn on the cob, fried sliced red peppers and onions and it all went down a treat with the family so I will be making it again!

Really nice mid-week tea. The salsa is amazing & all the flavours work really well together, with a nice bit of zing, could add another tablespoon of curry paste to the burger patties.

I think this recipe works better with pork rather than beef. My burgers ended up a bit soggy - would chop he onion not grate it next time. Other than that it is a good recipe and makes a change from the usual though it was nothing amazing.

Nice burgers, for a leaner more healthy option try using ground turkey or venison.

The flavours of this recipe are excellent. I think that maybe the way it is written, the red curry might overpower the pineapple salsa. Next time i will try it using only 1 tbsp of the red curry.
