1 tablespoon rosemary leaves, finely diced

1 egg yolk

1 cup macadamias, finely chopped

2 tablespoons flat leaf parsley

salt and pepper to taste

1/4 cup macadamia oil

6 sourdough rolls, cut in half

Macadamia aioli

1 clove garlic salt and pepper

1 egg yolk

lemon juice to taste

Rocket beetroot feta salad

2 big handfuls of rocket

100 g Greek feta, crumbled

Method

1. For the burger, place all the ingredients, except the oil and rolls into a large bowl and mix with your hands until well combined. Divide the mixture into 6 patties. Cover and place in the fridge for 30 minutes.

2. For the aioli, crush garlic and place in a bowl. Add a pinch of salt and pepper, the egg yolk and mustard and whisk until well combined. Add a few drops of oil, whisking constantly, until the mixture starts to thicken. Slowly pour in the remaining oil in a thin, steady stream, whisking constantly, until combined and the texture is thick and creamy. Add lemon juice 1 tablespoon at a time until the desired zing is reached, set aside.

3. Preheat a chargrill or barbecue to a medium-high heat, brush the patties with macadamia oil and cook for 3-4 minutes each side or until cooked through. Toast the rolls and spread with macadamia aioli, top with lamb patties and the rocket, beetroot, feta salad.
