Island Shrimp Burger

Think beyond beef and whip up these fun and fast shrimp burgers with a mango salsa. Serve on English muffins for another twist!

Ingredients

  • 1 lb large peeled shrimp , patted dry
  • 2 tbsp chopped green onion
  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp lime zest
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp Sriracha , or other Asian chili sauce
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil , for frying

Salsa

  • 2/3 cup chopped mango
  • 1/3 cup chopped roasted red pepper
  • 2 tbsp chopped coriander
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1/4 tsp sugar
  • 1/8 tsp salt

Serve with

  • 4 leaves Boston lettuce
  • 4 English muffins , or small hamburger buns
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise , mix with 1/4 tsp Sriracha

Directions

  • Combine shrimp with green onion, mayonnaise, cornstarch, lime juice and zest, salt and chili sauce in the bowl of a food processor.
  • Combine mango and red pepper with coriander, lime juice, sugar and salt.
  • Divide shrimp mixture into 4 equal portions and use your hands to form 1/2-in.-thick patties about 3 to 4 in. in diameter.
  • Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high. Working in batches, and adding remaining oil as needed, fry burgers 2 min per side or until golden on the outside with a soft pink centre. Serve on toasted buns with spicy mayonnaise, lettuce and salsa.

Tip

The shrimp mixture will be soft and wet; it’s perfect for cooking in a pan or griddle, but it’s not ideal for a barbecue. Grinding shrimp up and making them into burgers is a great way to introduce skeptical kids to the flavour.
