Chef's notes

Use chili sauce if you don't have fresh chillies.

Freeze the uncooked burgers, separated with greaseproof paper for easy thawing.

I added a little sherry and a splash of olive oil as well, just for the hell of it.

With in the proportions above, you should not need a beaten egg to hold the burgers together, however, if you increase the quantity of breadcrumbs over 40g , then add a beaten egg at step one.

Peeling ginger

There is no need to peel ginger. As a result of attending a Thai cookery demo, we have learnt that peeling ginger is unnecessary unless for aesthetic purposes as the skin is high in fibre and full of flavour. However, do remove any bits that have become tough or woody.
