I don't know about your kids, but mine sometimes get stuck in a rut of wanting the same things for dinner all the time - which is not much fun when you insist on family meals and everyone eating the same thing!
Will is going through a 'burger' phase at the minute, so we had a go at jazzing up our usual burger recipe with some surprisingly delicious results.
So here it is for you... Coconut & Lime Burgers (inspired by the Harry Nilsson:D)
500g minced beef
1/2 cup dessicated coconut
1/4 cup chopped corriander (you can buy tubes, ready prepared, in tesco)
3 tbsps lime juice
2 tbsps Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp cream of coconut
1 tsp soy sauce
can of creamed coconut
1 cup mayonnaise
2 tsp cream of coconut
1 tbsp chopped corriander
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 cup desicated coconut
Combine the beef, 1/2 cup coconut, corriander, egg, lime juice, Worcestershire sauce, 1 tablespoon cream of coconut, soy sauce, and salt in a bowl until well mixed. If you don't know how much salt to use, go easy, then fry a little off and taste it to see if more is required.
Make four burger patties.
Stir together the mayonnaise with 2 teaspoons of cream of coconut and 1 tablespoon of corriander and set aside.
Heat the oil in a pan. Stir in 1 cup of coconut and a little salt. Cook and stir until the coconut has turned golden brown. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate and set aside.
Cook the burgers as you normally would, about 4 minutes per side for medium-well. Place the cooked burgers in buns, with mayonnaise mixture, sprinkle with the toasted coconut, and serve.
Yummy! We had ours with grilled pineapple rings too for that extra summery Hawaiian feel.
