“Easy good variation on the standard burger. Shrimp burgers topped with a spicy mayo, fresh avocado, thin onion slices, lettuce and tomato make this the ultimate burger. These can also be froze and grilled or sauteed later. I love these. We get great prices down here and I know Sam's and Costco also have great prices. Take advantage. Also salad shrimp at 3 dollars a bag this makes a great new burger for little money. I just think the chili sauce with the mayo is a big part of the dish, but I always have the chili sauce in my fridge. If you don't. Tarter sauce would be just fine. I also like to toast the buns and make sure you have lots of fresh tomatoes and lettuce like you would for any good burger. This was originally from a friend in Miami but she hates spice so I had to add some ... Enjoy!!”

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
