Recipe by SarasotaCook
READY IN: 40mins
YIELD: 6 Burgers




  • Now you can get boiled salad shrimp (the baby shrimp) or you can buy precooked any size you want. Just remember -- 1 lb. I have used large and chopped, small and not chopped and medium and chopped a little. So don't worry about the size. Besides, I love to buy it pre cooked for this, easier and quicker. This should be something quick so I try to take advantage of precooked shrimp when I can. Most stores do have some descent cooked shrimp these days. Even frozen precooked shrimp once thawed and drained well and dried will work just fine. Don't worry.
  • In a large bowl, -- Mix -- the chopped shrimp, scallions, pepper, lemon zest, shallot, celery, mayonnaise, seasoning, egg, parsley, and bread crumbs. Toss lightly. Don't over mix.
  • Patties -- Make the patties -- just form a medium size patty and then dredge lightly in the bread crumbs or panko. Pan saute on medium heat in a non stick skillet in the oil until golden brown. It will take 3-4 minutes per side is all until done.
  • TIP: I like to freeze the patties for a 15 minutes before sauteing. This just help firm them up a bit and helps with the frying.
  • Grill your burger buns -- prepare the toppings, the tomatoes, lettuce and onions and make your chili sauce. Just mix the mayo and chili sauce together for an amazing spread.
  • Serve dinner -- Serve each bun with a slather of the chili mayo, then lettuce, the burger, then tomato and avocado, onion, more lettuce, and top it with the bun also slathered again with the chili mayo. It is perfect.
