Jalapeño Lime Turkey Burgers & Aioli

Spring time weather in Seattle means weeks of torrential down pour, followed by (mildly) sweltering heat that coaxes the abnormally pale population out onto their decks for grilling, drinks and a lot of sun burns. With all this warm weather lately, my grill has been sitting on my deck just begging to be used. So on one exceptionally nice evening I whipped up some spicy jalapeño lime turkey burgers smothered in a killer aioli with Fusion Lime Fresco Sea Salt that you could easily dip anything in (including, but not limited to, fries, chips, chicken, steak, fish, a spoon, etc.)

Jalapeño and lime go great together, especially when jazzing up turkey burgers, which can be pretty lack luster on their own. I threw all the turkey burger ingredients into a bowl and formed the patties so they could rest in the fridge while I whipped up the aioli for the burger and fries.


Making aioli has to be one of my new favorite things! It all happened so quickly; I was truly amazed when my liquid egg and oil mixture all of a sudden turned into a thick paste! Way more gratifying than mixing store bought mayo with lime and jalapeño. I will definitely be making different flavors of aioli in the future!


For the final addition of this meal I have to admit I took a bit of a short cut, but when Trader Joe’s makes sweet potato fries so easy and so good, you can’t not do it!  I seasoned the fries with Fusion Vermont Maple Salt and Fusion Jalapeno Sea Salt for additional layers of flavor. All in all, a great way to spend a sunny evening with good company.
