Vera Byquist of Winnipeg has been making these burgers for years. She loves them because they're hot and spicy. We agree, but if you prefer a milder taste, reduce or omit the hot pepper flakes in the patties.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon finely grated lime rind
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh mint
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 pinch salt

Method

In bowl, mix together lime rind, thyme, allspice, hot pepper flakes and salt ; mix in pork. Shape into four 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick patties. (Make-ahead: Layer separated by waxed paper in airtight container and refrigerate for up to 24 hours or freeze for up to 1 month.)

Mango Salsa: In bowl, combine mango, jalapeno pepper, red onion, mint, lime juice and salt. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Place patties on greased grill over medium-high heat or under broiler; close lid and grill, turning once, until no longer pink inside and digital thermometer inserted sideways into centre reads 160°F (71°C), 10 to 12 minutes. Sandwich along with salsa in buns.
