These sound so delicious and yet healthy and diabetic friendly - you could serve without the bun if you are really diligent about carbs and have them with a salad, From BH&G Australian Diabetic Living.

  4. Reduce heat to medium and spoon half of prawn mixture between the 4 rings and cook for 4 minutes or until mixture is almost set and golden brown underneath and then turn over burgers and rings and cook for 4 minutes or until set.
  5. Using a small sharp knife, loosen burgers from rings and remove rings.
  6. Transfer burgers to a plate and cover with foil and return rings to pan and repeat with remaining oil and prawn mix to make 4 more burgers.
