Making turkey burgers is a great strategy for low fat eating, but sometimes lacks some flavor, but we're going to solve that with this citrus teriyaki burger recipe.

Difficulty: Easy
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
Serves: 4

1/2 tsp. zest, orange
1 tbsp. garlic, fresh, crushed
2 tsp. shallots, minced
1 tbsp. ginger root, fresh, minced
1/2 tsp. pepper, jalapeno, minced
3 1/3 tbsp. low sodium soy sauce
Pinch red pepper flakes
2 tsp. juice, lime
1 tsp. honey
1 1/4 pounds ground raw turkey
2 tbsp. onions, yellow, raw, minced
1 egg white, beaten
1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
Sriracha sauce, sliced tomatoes, lettuce, and green onions to serve on buns with burgers

1. Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Divide into equal portions and form into patties.

2. Saute burgers in a hot sauté pan with a small amount of oil. They will cook for about a total of 10 minutes. They should reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees on an instant-read thermometer and be firm to the touch when done.

3. Serve on buns with sriracha, tomato, green onions, and lettuce.
