For the salsa:
1 ripe avocado pear, stoned, peeled and diced
1 bunch salad onions, thinly sliced
1 tbsp olive oil
Grated zest and juice 1 lime
2 tomatoes, deseeded and chopped
1 pack fresh coriander, roughly chopped
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 ready made quality Beefburgers (Fresh or frozen).
8 tsp Cajun Seasoning
1 Ciabatta, sliced into 8 pieces

(1) In a bowl, combine all the ingredients for the salsa. Cover and store in the fridge until ready to serve. Make it a few hours in advance to allow the flavours to develop.

(2) Preheat the barbecue or grill. Rub 1 tsp of the Cajun seasoning into each side of the burgers. Grill or barbecue for 5-6 minutes each side until thoroughly cooked, the juices run clear and there is no pink meat.

(3) Lightly toast the slices of ciabatta on each side. Place each beefburger on a ciabatta slice and top with the salsa. Serve with the remaining slices of ciabatta.

Drink: a big, brash red wine with lots of body works well with all the flavours of the burger.

Variation: as an alternative to the ciabatta, use Italian Ciabatta rolls.


Cook’s tip: if the weather lets you down, create the barbecue effect by griddling the burgers. Preheat a griddle pan until hot, then cook the burgers for 5-6 minutes each side, until the juices run clear and there is no pink meat.
