Low Carb Bang Bang Shrimp Recipe
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)
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.
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.
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.
Enjoy with or without a bun! Tip: make the quick bang bang sauce and orange slaw listed below!
