Jamaican "jerk" seasonings transform a humble ground turkey patty into a lively summer burger.
For ''Jerk'' Turkey Burgers:
1/3 cup  couscous
1/2 cup  water
2 teaspoons  canola oil
1/2 cup  chopped red bell pepper (1/2 medium)
2 cloves  garlic, minced
1 teaspoon  dried thyme
1 teaspoon  curry powder
1/2 teaspoon  ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon  allspice
1/2 teaspoon  ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon  salt
1/4 teaspoon  freshly ground pepper
1/4 teaspoon  Spanish paprika
1/8 teaspoon  cayenne pepper
12 ounces  ground turkey
4 whole-wheat  hamburger buns or English muffins, split and toasted
4 slices  tomato
4 lettuce  leaves

Tip: To oil a grill rack, oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill).
Combine couscous and water in a small bowl; let stand for 20 to 30 minutes, or until the couscous is tender and the water is absorbed.

Meanwhile, heat oil in a small nonstick skillet over low heat. Add bell pepper, garlic, thyme, curry powder, cumin, allspice, ginger, salt, pepper, paprika and cayenne. Cook, stirring, until the bell pepper is slightly softened, 1 to 2 minutes. Let cool.

Prepare a grill or preheat the broiler.

Combine turkey, the couscous and the bell-pepper mixture in a medium-sized bowl; mix thoroughly but lightly. Shape into four 3/4-inch-thick patties. If using the grill, oil the grill rack (see Tip) or oil the broiler pan. Grill or broil the patties until browned and no longer pink inside, about 5 minutes per side. Place on buns (or English muffins) and garnish with tomato slices and lettuce leaves.
