Turk jerk burger with mango salsa

1 1/3 pound lean ground turkey
1 garlic clove minced
2 green onions, sliced thin
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
2-3 teaspoons Caribbean spice mix
1 teaspoon ground pepper
2 ripe limes

Preheat grill. Combine the turkey and next 5 ingredients in a bowl but handle minimally to prevent a tough burger. It is best to let the raw mixture sit in the refrigerator to help the flavors seep into the burger.

Form burgers into 4-5 patties and create a small dent in the center to prevent a hill in your cooked burger. Place on the grill. Use a brush to apply a small amount of olive oil to the top of the burger. Flip once after 6 minutes and squeeze lime juice over patties right after you flip and once they are done.

Mango Salsa
1 large, ripe mango, chopped
½ red pepper, chopped
¼ red onion, chopped
2 Tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
ground pepper
juice from 1 orange

Combine the mango, pepper, onion, cilantro, pepper and orange juice in a bowl and let sit to let the flavors blend.

Add salsa on top of the burgers and eat with or without a bun.
