Try this Asian inspired shrimp burger/slider recipe. Top it with cucumber slices and some Siracha or any Asian chili sauce, if you like. A great alternative to the usual meat burgers and it's healthier as well.
1 Bag/454g/1 lb Peeled Frozen Shrimps/Prawns, thawed, pat-dry, and finely chopped
¼ of a Small Red Onion, finely diced
3 Tbsp Fresh Cilantro, finely chopped
2 Cloves Garlic, peeled, finely chopped
1 Scallion, finely chopped
1 Jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped
1 tsp Chili Flakes
1 tsp Sea Salt
Freshly Ground White Pepper
8 Small Burger Buns, toasted
In a large bowl, mix the shrimp with red onion, cilantro, garlic, scallion, jalapeno, chili flakes sea salt, pepper, and egg. Divide into 8 equal patties and refrigerate for about 2 hours.
Prepare a large cast iron or non-stick pan with one Tbsp of oil over medium to high heat. Grill the shrimp patties for about 3 minutes on each side, or until fully cooked. Meanwhile, toast the buns lightly and set side. To serve, place the shrimp patty on the bun, top with chili sauce, and some cucumber slices. Serve immediately.
