In this dish, we’re putting a Japanese spin on the turkey burger. By infusing the hearty patties with tangy, sweet teriyaki sauce, we’re flavoring them from within (and ensuring perfectly juicy centers). We’re also adding ginger and scallions to the mix for aromatic piquancy, black and white sesame seeds for a hint of crunch and panko breadcrumbs (a classic Japanese ingredient) to act as a binding agent. But no burger is complete without a delicious topping. We’re finishing ours with a tart cucumber and cilantro garnish.
