holy shrimp burger!

holy shrimp burger!


holy shrimp, this burger was so freaking goog!!!  i hope y'all can try out this recipe as it is my new flavorite thing ever and probably my go to meal for summer 2017.  the kool thing about using ground shrimp as a base is you can season it and fix it up in so many ways and its such a nice change of pace from the usual beef patties (not that i’m eating red meat anymore but…whatevs).  try seasoning the ground shrimp with green onion, soy sauce and sesame oil for a little Asian flare or top it with watermelon salsa for some refreshing summertime flavor.  think of your favorite shrimp dish and turn it into a burger—you can’t go wrong!


for me, this recipe made 4 english muffin sized burgers so feel free to adjust the measurements to suit your buns ;)  also, i don’t own a grill (its illegal to have one in my nyc apartment :ppp) so i pan seared my patties.  the mix is a little sticky so i’m not sure how it would hold up on a grill….it might need more bread crumbs to make a firmer patty? idk so grill at your own risk!


happy eating y’all :)
