Attention, grillmasters! Fixing your special burgers this Memorial Day weekend? Take a photo and enter your recipe in our 2013 Battle of the Burgers!
And while we've got your attention, may we introduce you to some competition. George Levinthal of Goleta, Calif., had top burgers in both our 2011 and 2012 Burger Battles. This year, he's submitting the salmon burger pictured above:
"Looking for a unique burger that will 'wow' friends and family? Then Tropical Islands Salmon Burgers are for you! These awesome burgers are sure to become a favorite for barbecues, picnics, or family lunches and dinners. Tropical Islands Salmon Burgers are easy to prepare, nutritious and are taste bud pleasers. Starting with fresh salmon ... these burgers also contain fresh herbs and spices, onions and tangy mustard. Each burger is topped with fresh mango, avocado and tomato salsa with a kick of jalapeno. The burger sits on a slice of grilled pineapple and a zesty cocktail sauce to bring out the tropical flavor of the islands. ... This will be the best and baddest burger that you will have ever had. As they say on the islands, luana, enjoy!"
Think you can do better? Enter our third annual Battle of the Burgers. Submissions end June 3 at 5 p.m.
Go to our L.A. Times Food Facebook page and submit your burger recipe, along with a short essay about why yours is the most amazing burger of all time. Include a photo if you can; voters will want to see proof.
We'll take top vote getters and try out the burgers in The Times Test Kitchen. The top five Burgermeisters will get an invite to the Los Angeles Times to have their picture taken with their top burger. We'll feature the photos and recipes in our Daily Dish blog as well as our issue of the L.A. Times Food section that celebrates the Fourth of July. Look for that to come out June 29.
