Spicy Lamb Burgers With Herbed Yoghurt

About This Recipe

Are you looking for a delicious lamb recipe with a difference? If you are, you’ve found it! Here’s my spicy lamb burgers with herbed yoghurt for you to enjoy.

For burgers, lamb makes a really nice change from beef. These need to be prepared ahead and rested in the fridge to make sure they don’t fall apart when they are cooked, so they’re a great make-ahead meal. The yogurt makes a lovely cooling accompaniment to the spicy burgers. Light that barbecue and open the cold beers…!

Step By Step

  1. Put the lamb, onion, parsley, carrot, paprika, chilli flakes, egg and breadcrumbs into a large bowl. Season with 1 teaspoon of salt. Using your hands, mix well to combine and shape into 6 burgers. Place the burgers onto a flat plate, cover with cling film and rest in the fridge for 1 hour.

  3. Remove the burgers from the fridge 10 minutes before you want to cook them.
  4. Preheat the grill to high and line a large baking tray with baking parchment. Put the burgers onto the lined tray and cook under the grill for 5 minutes, then gently turn each burger and continue to cook for a further 5 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, split the burger buns in half and toast them.
  6. Serve the burgers between the buns with rocket leaves and a dollop of the herbed yogurt. Fantastic served with cold beers.

GINO’S TIP: If you’re short of time, place the burger patties in the freezer for 10 minutes to firm them up before frying.

Linguine with tinned tuna, olives and chilliLinguine al tonno

Without doubt this has to be one of my father’s favourite pasta dishes. I remember when I used to live with him it was a must-have dish at least once a week but not always with the same shape of pasta. Please make sure that you never use tuna in brine for this recipe and if you like you can add some capers to the sauce.

Torta di Pane al CioccolatoChocolate and Rum Bread & Butter Pudding

To tell you the truth I am such a big fan of bread and butter pudding that I had to create my own version of this great dish. The rum with the chocolate is absolutely divine and with a pinch of cinnamon, it's a marriage made in heaven. My only tip for this recipe is to make sure that it rests into the fridge for at least six hours before cooking – this will give you a fantastic soufflé effect when...

Ravioli con salmone e ricottaRavioli filled with Smoked Salmon & Ricotta

When I was a child, eating smoked salmon was always a massive treat because it was so expensive. It's cheaper now, but still fantastic. Just take care when seasoning the dish because the salmon is already salty.

COPPETTE DI FRAGOLE, MASCARPONE E LIMONCELLOStrawberry & Mascarpone Tarts with Limoncello

For me, limoncello is the scent and flavour of home. Traditionally, this citrus liqueur is made from the best lemons in the world – Sorrento lemons. In Italy it is a hugely popular drink, with many people in the south making their own version. It’s really strong, about 40% proof, so you only need a small amount. Here, limoncello is mixed with creamy Italian cheeses and fresh seasonal strawberries...

This is such an impressive-looking dessert and makes a great end to any kind of meal. You can be as creative as you like in flavouring the cream. In previous experiments I have mixed it with fruit, chocolate bits and pieces of marshmallow, but frankly I prefer this simpler version.

Soufflé Di Banane e CioccolatoBanana & Chocolate Soufflé

In our family, the combination of chocolate and banana is a big winner, especially in pancakes or cupcakes, so I created this soufflé just for a change. It's really easy to prepare, and also works well with strawberries or raspberries.
