Fish sauce provides the essential savoury flavour found in traditional Thai cuisine. Thai Kitchen's Premium Fish Sauce is made only from the careful first pressing of salted anchovies. Its complex flavour blends smoothly with the sweet, tangy and spicy flavours of Thai cuisine. Use in place of soy sauce or salt to add a savoury taste to any dish.

Instructions

Make the toasted rice powder: Toast the uncooked jasmine rice in a dry saute pan until it has a deep brown colour. Remove and grind into a powder in a mortar and pestle or a coffee grinder.

For the burger patties: Combine all ingredients together in a bowl and mix well. Form into 5 patties. Grill the burgers until done to your liking, or fry them on a skillet.

For the slaw: Combine all ingredients and mix it well.

Assembly: Put Sriracha-style sauce and mashed avocado on the bun, top with the patty, red onion, tomato, and any other toppings you like. Top it off with a generous amount of the slaw – you can also serve extra slaw on the side. Enjoy!
