Shishito Pepper Bison Burger


Ingredients for shishito peppers:

  • 1/2 lb shishito peppers
  • 1 tablespoon safflower oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon minced garlic
  • sea salt & pepper to taste
  • fresh lemon juice to taste

Ingredients for burger:

  • 1 sprouted grain bun
  • 5oz raw lean ground bison (I used Northstar Bison)
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1 oz reduced fat mozzarella cheese (optional)
  •  Seasonings:
    • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
    • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
    • sea salt & pepper
  • Garnish:
    • red onion slices
    • heirloom tomato slices
    • lettuce


  • Camp Chef Wood Pellet Grill


Step 1

Fire up your grill and set it to 350F.

Step 2

Set a nonstick skillet on medium-high heat and add safflower oil. When the oil is hot, toss in the shishito peppers and all the peppers to hear. Add a few pinches of sea salt & pepper and garlic. Toss the peppers in the seasoning for about 2-3 minutes. Remember to ensure that all sides of the peppers are searing.

Step 3

In the final minute of cooking, add freshly squeezed lemon juice to taste.

Step 4

Remove the peppers from the heat and set aside.

Step 5

Season the bison meat and form a patty.  Place the patty on the hot grill (or cook in a nonstick skillet) and cook to desired readiness.  I personally recommend cooking wild game meat all the way through since some wild game has been known to carry bacterial diseases.

Step 6

Once the patty is nearly finished cooking on the grill, if desired, place a slice of cheese on top and allow it to melt on the patty in the final minutes of cooking.

Step 7

Build your burger and enjoy!
