Yep, these are excellent! I had mine on an fresh organic bed of lettuces and herbs with a bit of vinaigrette dressing. My husband wanted his on a kaiser roll with lettuce and mayo. We both enjoyed these tremendously. I made the recipe as is, using green pepper and scallions as that's what I had on hand. I sprayed the grill liberally with Pam spray for grills and cook low on my gas grill, watched carefully and turned carefully. SO good! I will definitely be making these again. Thanks Chia for another great shrimp recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Start a charcoal or gas grill; fire should be moderately hot and rack about 4 inches from heat source.
  2. Combine garlic, chili, ginger and 1/3 of the shrimp in a food processor and purée, stopping machine to scrape down sides of container as necessary.
  3. Add remaining shrimp along with shallots, bell pepper, salt, pepper and cilantro, and pulse as many times as necessary to chop shrimp, but not too finely.
  4. Shape mixture into 4 patties.
  5. Brush grill or patties lightly with oil and place them on grill.
  6. Cook undisturbed until a dark crust appears on bottom and they release fairly easily with a spatula, about 5 minutes.
  7. Turn and cook an additional 3 to 4 minutes on the other side.
  8. Serve on buns or not, as you like, with ketchup or lime juice as a condiment.
