Lamb and harissa burgers

To serve


Combine all of the burger ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Take a pinch of the mince and fry off in a hot pan so you can taste and adjust the seasoning and spice levels to your liking
Form the mixture into four even-sized patties
Cook the burgers for 4–5 minutes on each side in a smoking hot griddle pan or on the barbecue, finishing in the oven for a few minutes if necessary
Place the rocket in a bowl with the herbs and lightly dress with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and a squeeze of lemon
Serve the burgers in brioche buns with the herb salad and condiments of your choosing – something creamy like mayonnaise or plain yoghurt goes well with the spicy harissa
