Place the ground turkey, garlic, ginger, fish sauce, pepper, salt and basil in a large bowl. Using your hands, combine thoroughly and form into 4 uniform patties.

Tips for Making This Recipe
Because we're using fish sauce in this recipe, we've called for much less salt in both the burgers (and the fries below) than we normally would. If you omit the fish sauce, add 1/2 teaspoon of salt to the meat mixture and the same to the fries.
