    Cajun Burgers with Avocado Salsa

    Waitrose Aberdeen Angus Beefburgers (available prepacked and from the service counter) are made with beef from cattle which are bred from pedigree bulls, for assured quality and taste. Served with salsa, which should be made in advance, and seasoned with Cajun spices, they are ideal for a barbecue party.

    • 1/2 bunch salad onions, thinly sliced
    • 1 tbsp olive oil

    Cook's tips

    If the weather lets you down, create the barbecue effect by griddling the burgers. Preheat a griddle pan until hot, then cook the burgers for 5-6 minutes each side, until the juices run clear and there is no pink meat.


    As an alternative to the ciabatta, use Waitrose Italian Ciabatta rolls.
