About this recipe:These burgers aren't made from beef, but from kangaroo. Yes, you read right - kangaroo burgers. Kangaroo meat tastes a little bit like beef, but more gamey. It's hard to describe, I guess you'll just have to try it.

1/2 bunch fresh thyme
1 teaspoon lemon zest
salt and ground black pepper to taste

Mix the kangaroo, onion, caraway seed, thyme, egg and lemon zest together in a bowl; season with salt and pepper. If mixture is too wet and sticky add breadcrumbs. Shape the mixture into 8 balls and flatten.
Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat; cook the burgers in the hot oil until the burgers are cooked through and no longer pink in the middle, 5 to 7 minutes per side for well done. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the centre should read 70 degrees C. Serve the burgers on the split buns with lettuce and tomato.
