Gluten-Free Ponzu Burger

Gluten-Free Ponzu Burger with Quick Ponzu Pickles Recipe

When you’re craving two different cuisines and you can’t make up your mind on which one to eat, what do you do? I let my creative genius take over and I whip up a dish that fuses the two together – like this Asian-American Gluten-Free Ponzu Burger with Quick Ponzu Pickles recipe. It takes the American hamburger and infuses it with Asian flavor.

I have to say that I am so excited to have gluten-free ponzu sauce! If you aren’t familiar with it, it is a salty, citrusy soy sauce that is incredibly versatile. For this recipe, I used ponzu not only in the burgers themselves but in the pickles and the secret sauce.

I used Marukan’s Yuzu Ponzu in this recipe. Yuzu has a tart flavor, similar to that of a grapefruit, with hints of mandarin orange. It’s vibrant and delicious, and Marukan’s ponzu sauces and rice vinegars are non-GMO and gluten-free.

If you want something different for dinner this week, something with amazing flavor that is sure to satisfy all appetites, this is the dish!
