Shrimp Burgers

  • 1 pound raw medium shrimp, shelled and deveined
  • 1 xl egg
  • 2 Tbl chopped cilantro
  • 1 Tbl garlic
  • 1/2 cup Panko or Gluten-Free Panko
  • 1/2 jalapeno, chopped and seeded
  • 1 large shallot, minced
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/3 cup red pepper, chopped small
  • 3 Tbl canola oil

Avocado Aioli

  • 1 avocado, halved, seeded, and peeled (save the pit!)
  • 1/4 cup sour cream or plain greek yogurt
  • 1 Tbl fresh lime juice
  • 1 Tbl minced garlic
  • 1/2 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped (or 1/2 tsp cayenne)
  • 2 Tbl chopped cilantro
  • 1 tsp sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


Avocado Aioli

  1. Scoop the avocado pulp into the bowl of a food processor. Add the sour cream, lime juice, garlic cloves, jalapeno, cilantro, salt, and pepper. Process until smooth. Check and adjust seasoning.
  2. Place in a dish, add the pit (this helps prevent it from turning brown), cover, and chill for an hour.


  1. Divide the shrimp in half. Coarsely chop one half and set aside. Put the remaining half in a food processor and grind to a coarse puree. Add egg, shallot, cilantro, jalapeno, and garlic to the processor. Process until smooth. Sprinkle mixture with breadcrumbs and process again. Transfer contents of the food processor to a large bowl. Add coarsely chopped shrimp and red pepper. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Mix well. Form burgers and chill for 1 hour (covered).
  2. Heat oil in a heavy skillet. When very hot, fry the shrimp burgers until golden, about 3 minutes per side, depending on thickness. Drain on paper towels.
  3. Serve plain, in a lettuce wrap or on an Onion Brioche Bun.
