This cleaning out the cabinets thing has been fun and delicious so far. I cook with wasabi every so often, but always seem to have a bit left in the cabinet. I always have sesame seeds laying around. This seems like a burger that would be made with tuna or something, but these flavors actually pair surprisingly well with the beef. I was actually sort of shocked just how well it all went together! Not sure if the sesame seed crust was somehow able to seal in extra juice, or if it was just a fluke but this was one of the juiciest burgers I've had in a while. (P.S. there is more than one photo this time)
Coating the burgers in sesame seeds. Yum! I've eaten sesame seeds every day for about a week straight. I guess you could say I'm on a roll. Wow. Terrible joke.
Some seeds will fall off on the grill. Others will get deliciously toasted.
Wasabi mayo, tomato, onion, and avocado.
Note the dripping juice being absorbed into the bun. Burger goodness.
For the mayo I mixed a tablespoon of powdered wasabi into a tablespoon of hot water and mixed it up till it was wasabi paste. Mix this with mayo to your desired strongness. Then I just made some beef patties, dredged them in sesame seeds and grilled. Top with avocado, tomato, and onion.
