Emily’s Chicken Schnitzel Asian Burger with Chilli Lime Mayo

On Sunday 19th October Schnitzel Burgers were on the menu, with Emily creating her own Asian twist to this Oktoberfest Brisbane classic – with Wolfgang, from K&K Austrian restaurant explaining the history behind the schnitzel.

Emily prepared her own special ‘take’ on this classic. We’ll simply call it …


Emily’s Chicken Schnitzel Asian Burger with Chilli Lime Mayo and Emily’s Chilli Jam


Guo Bao (Asian Brioche Bun)

300g low gluten flour for steamed bun (available at Asian grocery stores)

35 g caster sugar

5 g (1¾ tsp) dried yeast

30 g lard, melted

extra 95 g plain flour



  1. Stir lard, yeast, 1 tablespoon sugar and 190ml warm water in a bowl until yeast dissolves.
  2. Mix flours, 1½ tsp salt and remaining sugar in an electric mixer fitted with a dough hook on low speed to combine, add yeast mixture and knead until smooth (8-10 minutes).
  3. Place in a lightly oiled bowl, turn to coat, cover with plastic wrap and set aside in a warm place until doubled in size (2 hours).
  4. Knock back dough, divide into 10 –  15 balls and transfer to a tray lined with baking paper, cover with plastic wrap and set aside until doubled in size (1 hour).
  5. Roll dough flat into ovals, brush half of each lightly with oil and fold in half. Place on a sheet of baking paper, cover with a tea towel and set aside until doubled in size (1 hour).
  6. Steam buns in a bamboo steamer over high heat until puffed and cooked through (8-10 minutes)!


Emily’s Chilli Jam

Use same recipe as the first weekend (see previous blog)


Chilli and Lime Mayo 

1 egg yolk

1 whole egg

1 pinch of salt

1 pinch of sugar

1 whole chilli deseeded and chopped finely

300 ml of Soy bean oil or any other veggie oil (NOT olive oil)

1 teaspoon of mustard seed

1 lime (juiced and zest)



  1. Using a stick blender, blitz eggs together with sugar chilli minced and lime zest until well combined.
  2. Add oil slowly while the blender is still blitzing the eggs until well combined.
  3. Add more oil in a constant stream until they are well combined and thicken. A good sign of mayo is the mixture starting to thicken and the mayo did not split half way through.
  4. Add lime juice and more seasoning if require
