  1. Tip the mince, the lime zest and half the ginger into a large bowl. Beat for 3-5 mins with a wooden spoon until the meat is pale and uniform in texture. Shape into four even-sized patties, about 3mm thick, then place on a plate and chill in the fridge.
  2. Next, make the slaw. Mix both cabbages, the carrot, spring onion, chilli, coriander, peanuts, if you like, juice 1½ limes, the remaining ginger and 1 tbsp soy sauce together until well combined. Set aside.
  3. Set a small pan over a medium heat. Add the curry paste and cook for 2 mins until fragrant. Mix in 1 tbsp soy sauce, the peanut butter and coconut milk. Simmer for 2 mins, stirring frequently, until slightly thickened. Remove from the heat and add the remaining lime juice. Set aside.
  4. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a high heat. Fry the burgers for 3-4 mins on each side, pushing down with a spatula to create crispy edges.
  5. Lightly toast the cut side of the brioche rolls in the burger pan, then fill with the satay sauce, 1 patty each, the slaw and a final drizzle of satay sauce. Serve with extra slaw on the side.

Tip: Cook the smash burgers on a barbeque for the same amount of time for a high summer twist.
