Portuguese burgers with tomato and coriander salsa

As no barbecue is complete without burgers, make this juicy home-made version and serve with a piquant salsa

Ingredients (Serves 4)
  • 400g/14oz lean beef mince
  • 50g/2oz onion, finely diced
  • Pinch of salt
  • 75ml/3fl oz Nando’s Portuguese BBQ Marinade
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • Flour for dusting
  • 4 crusty rolls to serve

For the salsa
  • 150g/5oz fresh tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 50g/2oz medium onions, finely chopped
  • Handful coriander leaves, freshly chopped
  • 3 tsp Nando’s Extra Extra Hot Peri-Peri Sauce

First make the burgers. Mix the beef mince, onion, salt, marinade and eggs together then, using damp hands, form 4 equal-sized patties and dust lightly with flour.

Cook the burgers over preheated barbecue coals for 8-10 minutes. Meanwhile, mix together the salsa ingredients or use a blender if you prefer.

Serve the barbecued burgers on the crusty rolls, topped with a generous helping of the salsa on each.
