Chunky Barbeque Relish Recipe

Today chicken burgers are my burger of choice. Flavours must be authentic so a chicken burger needs a flame-grilled chicken breast rather than a patty. Served with lots of crispy lettuce, creamy homemade aioli (garlic mayonnaise), gherkin slices and chunky barbeque relish; this mixture of spicy creaminess produces a delicious, juicy burger.

Yields: 175 g


25 g Salted Butter

250g chopped Onion

30 ml Treacle Brown Sugar

15 ml freshly grated Ginger

15 ml freshly grated Garlic

15 ml chopped Chillies, seeds removed

15 ml Honey

15 ml Mustard Seeds

15 ml White Wine Vinegar

15 ml Dijon Mustard

250 ml freshly squeezed Orange Juice

90 ml Kikkoman Soya Sauce


1) Heat a pan, add butter and sauté onions

2) Once the onions are translucent add all the above ingredients and allow simmering until the liquid amount is reduced
