Although Lure Fishbar specializes in seafood, chef Capon created this burger for the South Beach Wine & Food Festival's annual Burger Bash event. Lure's kitchen prepares a special sauce and housemade bacon jam as condiments and presents the burger with two thick onion rings speared on bamboo toothpicks—touches that set this burger apart.
