"Jerk" Turkey Burgers

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/jerk_turkey_burgers.html

From EatingWell:  July/August 1993

Jamaican “jerk” seasonings transform a humble ground turkey patty into a lively summer burger.

4 servings | Active Time: 25 minutes | Total Time: 45 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Combine couscous and water in a small bowl; let stand for 20 to 30 minutes, or until the couscous is tender and the water is absorbed.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a small nonstick skillet over low heat. Add bell pepper, garlic, thyme, curry powder, cumin, allspice, ginger, salt, pepper, paprika and cayenne. Cook, stirring, until the bell pepper is slightly softened, 1 to 2 minutes. Let cool.
  3. Prepare a grill or preheat the broiler.
  4. Combine turkey, the couscous and the bell-pepper mixture in a medium-sized bowl; mix thoroughly but lightly. Shape into four 3/4-inch-thick patties. If using the grill, oil the grill rack (see Tip) or oil the broiler pan. Grill or broil the patties until browned and no longer pink inside, about 5 minutes per side. Place on buns (or English muffins) and garnish with tomato slices and lettuce leaves.
