Bunless Turkey Burger with Harissa Mayo

Something fun to do with turkey mince! We shaped ours into patties and enjoyed them as bunless burgers topped with a dollop of delicious harissa mayo. We sliced the courgettes into thin ribbons and griddled them until charred. You won’t prepare courgettes any other way after doing them this way…


  • 370g Athleat free-range turkey mince
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • olive oil
  • 3 large courgettes, very thinly sliced
  • sea salt flakes
  • 50g roasted red pepper from a jar, sliced into strips
  • 2 TB mayonnaise
  • 2 TSP harissa paste
  • round lettuce leaves, optional


  1. Preheat the oven to 320°F / 160°C.
  2. Season the turkey mince with salt and freshly black pepper and divide into two batches. Form each batch into two large burger patties.
  3. Heat one tablespoon olive oil in a pan and grill the patties on both sides until golden. Place onto an oven tray and finish the cooking in the oven for about 15 minutes to cook through sufficiently.
  4. In the meantime, brush a small amount of olive oil on a griddle pan and grill the courgette ribbons until visibly charred on both sides. Set aside to drain on a tray lined with kitchen paper to absorb excess grease and season with sea salt flakes.
  5. Mix the mayonnaise and harissa paste in a small bowl and spread over the turkey burgers. Serve with the griddled courgette ribbons and strips of roasted red pepper.
