Make the burgers
Finely chop the mint leaves (a handful) and put them into a large bowl.
Add the lamb mince (500g) and salt (¼ tsp) and mix with your hands until the mint leaves and salt are evenly distributed.
Divide the mixture into four and shape into burgers. Make a little dent in the centre of each one (as the meat naturally puffs up as it cooks, so this will ensure that you end up with a flat burger).
Make the herb mayonnaise
While the burgers are cooking, make the herb mayonnaise.
Put the mayonnaise (4 tbsp), herbs (a small handful of fresh mint leaves, a small handful of fresh coriander, the leaves from a couple of sprigs of fresh thyme) and the zest of ¼ of a lemon into a bowl.
Blitz with a hand blender until the herbs are finely chopped and evenly distributed in the mayonnaise.
Season with salt to taste.
