I just LOVE Thai food so I wanted to create a burger that had that wonderful Thai flavor. It turned out to be just delish! Don't be scared of the green curry paste it really isn't that spicy. It just adds extra flavor. You have to make the slaw and mayo to really get the full effect of the burger. I hope y'all enjoy it!
