Bang Bang Shrimp Burgers Recipe

Ingredients

Low Carb Bang Bang Shrimp Burgers
Ingredients for 4 burger patties:

  • 1 1/4lb raw jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 tablespoon fresh garlic, minced
  • 2 green onion stalks, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup (red) bell pepper, finely diced
  • 1 jalapeño, diced (with seeds removed for heat)
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • avocado oil spray (or olive oil)
Steps
  1. Add the raw shrimp (PEELED AND DEVEINED) to a food processor or high powered blender.  Pulse blend to create a sticky, chunky mince.  DO NOT pulverize – just pulse blend until it is sticky yet still chunky.
  2. Add the shrimp to a bowl along with the remaining ingredients.  Mix thoroughly to create a seasoned ground shrimp batter.  Evenly divide the mince into 4 equal parts and create burgers.  TIP: shrimp is very lean so it is incredibly sticky – spray your hands with a little cooking oil when you attempt to roll them into shrimp burgers.
  3. Set a nonstick skillet on medium heat, and once hot, spray with a little oil.  Add the patties and cook for 4 to 6 minutes on each side. You may have to flip the burgers more frequently since shrimp cooks quickly and flipping them every 2 minutes or so prevents them from burning. The burgers should be plump and white with brown/seared edges when ready.
