Medium size, plump and juicy shrimp work the best. The process of making shrimp burgers is effortless and takes less than 10 minutes. You will need a food processor and simple, basic ingredients like Panko breadcrumbs, garlic, cilantro, shallots, eggs, jalapeño and red peppers. Shrimp naturally has mild seafood taste so it carries out the bold flavors of other ingredients nicely. That is why I love adding more potent flavors like these to my shrimp burgers to jazz it up a little bit. All of those flavors mixed together create an irresistible burger with a truly incredible taste.
This burger is moist, flavorful and satisfying. Perfect as a filling lunch or a light week night dinner. Serve it with a fresh side salad or a fun cabbage slaw for a complete wholesome meal. Enjoy!
