Thai Turkey Burgers

Today’s lunch was…

Thai Turkey Burgers

  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • 1 egg
  • 1 small zucchini, grated
  • 1 bunch green onions, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 2 TBSP toasted sesame oil

 Combine all ingredients except sesame oil in a large bowl, and mix well with your hands. Heat toasted sesame oil in a frying pan.  Form 4 patties with the meat and fry each patty until it’s cooked through.   Plate it with a little bit of Frank’s Red Hot if you so please.

For dinner I went out of my comfort zone and decided to get cod.  I’m not really a seafood eater, but I figured why not.  Well, I tried it and it was good, but I probably won’t make it again for myself, personally.  haha

Cod with Zucchini Salad

  • 1 fillet of cod (I got frozen Alaskan Cod from Trader Joe’s because that’s all they had)
  • Salt, pepper, and ground ginger to season fish
  • 2 zucchini, made into ribbons (just use a peeler)
  • 2 bell peppers cut into strips
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 TBSP coconut aminos
  • Juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 1 TBSP honey
  • 1 TBSP toasted sesame oil

Season the cod with salt, pepper and the ground ginger; set aside. Steam the zucchini and peppers for about 3 minutes.  Rinse with cold water, drain and pat dry, then place in a mixing bowl.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the grated ginger, coconut amino, lemon juice, honey and sesame oil.  Pour over the zucchini and peppers; mix well.  Place in refrigerator until ready to serve.  Put the EVOO in a pan and fry the cod.  Serve with a side of zucchini salad.
