Nice burger, cracking pineapple salsa.

Very nice and quick. Burgers stick together nicely without any egg however, they did benefit from a short while in the fridge and could have been improved with a little seasoning in the mix rather than just the spices. Pineapple salsa is a must addition, very fresh, wish I'd have saved what was left. Switched regular potatoes for sweet to compliment the relish. Worked well.

Very tasty and moist burgers - not at all dry! I made this recipe without the pineapple relish because I wanted to whip up something quick! Also used BBQ sauce to make the burgers stick together a bit more. Served the burgers in buns with potato wedges as suggested - absolutely lovely.

I made these burgers last night and they were absolutely delicious! I agree that the pineapple relish made the dish. They were so easy to make and low in fat, my hubby thought they were amazing! Will definitely be making these on a regular basis :)

This was something very special!! The burgers were so moist (maybe this was the carrot) and had the most beautiful flavour, I added a little extra jerk just to spice things up - very cheeky. The relish was also superb, I omitted the coriander and used parsley instead - I'd say the relish made the dish! Served this with paprika wedges and homemade coleslaw. Winning recipe.

These were lovely, put in double the amount of jerk seasoning because I like things spicy and it was perfect, but the real star of the show was the pineapple relish, it gave a cool contrast to the warm burger that made the whole thing delicious! Served it in a bun with some sweet potato wedges and a corn on the cob on the side.

Really nice flavours, the pineapple definitely enhances the dish. I served the burgers as mini patties for a starter along with the relish and it was enjoyed by both children and adults alike.

Made these for a bunch of teenagers and they were absolutely delicious. Definitely up the jerk seasoning to give it more of a kick! Made baked sweet potato chips and they were a perfect compliment.

Made these last weekend and they went down a treat! double or even tripple the recipe for a BBQ :) Relish is the best bit definately add to the burger, makes it even more special! FAB

Really delicious however will add double the jerk seasoning as 2 teaspoons were not enough.
