I’ve been jonesing a good teriyaki burger for a few weeks and looking for a chance to tweak the teriyaki pineapple marinade in Flavorize. This was a win-win. The easy route would have been to just mix up the sauce, marinate the ground chuck, and slap it all together. It would also be, well, normal.
Usually when I think of Sonoran dog style, it’s late at night and I’m bored on the interwebs. In this case, we’re talking about the great Sonoran hot dogs you find in Tucscon, Arizona. It’s a favorite at the University of Sonora with students and staff alike.
This particular “burger” is a fired-up re-creation of a fish sandwich one of our editors devoured in the tiny town of San Pedro on Ambergris Caye, Belize. The restaurant was called Elvies Burger Isle, and the diners sat outside under a tamarind tree on picnic benches. If ever there was a simple to prepare, quick and easy fish recipe with significant heat, this is it.
An alternative to hamburgers that make a great light meal served with a side salad or as cocktail party hors d’oeuvre.
Anything you can do with a hot dog is generally as good if not better when executed using Italian sausage, chorizo, or brats instead, no?
Allspice Cafe makes a tasty olive tapenade that goes great in ground beef for burgers. This version is a personal favorite I came up with that you may want to try for yourself. Overall, the spicy kick is on the mild side, which really lets you taste the rest of the tapenade.
Usually when someone writes “seduction” and “jerk” in the same sentence, they’re either referring to some jackass who broke their heart, or a date with a bottle of lotion. Not when it comes to the sweet awesome that is Pirate Johnny’s Syrena’s Seduction Hot Sauce, though. It’s a Jamaican jerk-inspired sweet heat that’s long on island flavor with a mild to moderate burn.
