1 cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced rounds

1/2 red onion, thinly sliced

1/4 cup rice vinegar

1/8 cup sugar

1 teaspoon salt


1 1/4 pounds ground turkey

1/3 cup steamed jasmine rice

1/4 cup panko

1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions

1 large egg

1/2 teaspoon sesame oil

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1 Thai chili or serrano chile, seeded and minced

1 teaspoon sugar

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 tablespoon peanut oil

4 sesame hamburger buns

Wasabi mayonnaise:

1/2 cup homemade mayonnaise or store-bought

1 teaspoon wasabi powder

1/2 teaspoon minced ginger
