  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dark molasses
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha hot chili sauce (found in the Asian aisle)
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon black sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 cup chow mein noodles, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil


  • 1 cup chili sauce
  • Juice of 1/2 a lime
  • 2 tablespoon honey


  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl using your hands. Be careful not to overwork it. You just want to blend it together.
  2. Heat medium sized skillet over medium heat.
  3. Add the oil.
  4. While the oil is heating up, form the patties (4-6 burgers).
  5. When you form the patties make an indent in the top of each burger in the middle. This will help them to not form like footballs.
  6. Cook the burgers 5-6 minutes on one side.
  7. Check to see if it’s a dark golden brown.
  8. Flip the burgers and cook another 5-6 minutes or until internal temperature equals 165F.
  9. To make the sauce mix all the ingredients in a bowl.
  10. To serve, put the burger on a toasted sesame bun and top with the sweetened chili lime sauce.


If you don’t like turkey, this would so work with ground chicken, beef or Ohhhhhhhhh even in a shrimp burger! OMG! YES!!!
