Shrimp Burger

I’m in love. I found this shrimp burger recipe in Coastal Living. We do tend to eat a lot of shrimp since Dude Martha does not consider it “fish” and will eat it. Some quick breaded and pan fried shrimp is also a go-to for me when Dude Martha doesn’t like whatever I’m making for dinner.

You’ve got to try this. It was amazing. I served it on whole wheat rolls with lettuce. I mixed up mayo with Dijon mustard, dill, and lemon juice which was spread on the rolls. This was so good that when the kids each ate only half a burger, I scooped the remains off their plates and saved them and ate them the next day for lunch. This is like a fabulous shrimp po boy. Very easy, and very tasty. This is in my keeper file.

1 lb peeled, deveined medium shrimp

1 tbsp butter

1/2 cup finely chopped celery

1/4 cup finely chopped onion

1 1/2 cup panko

1/2 cup mayo

1 egg

1 tsp lemon zest

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp dry mustard

1/2 tsp pepper

1/2 cup vegetable oil

Pulse the shrimp in a food processor until chopped then place in a bowl.  Melt butter in a skillet and cook celery and onion until tender. Add to shrimp with 1 cup of the panko and mayo, egg, zest, salt, dry mustard, and pepper. Gently mix until combined. Form into 5-6 patties and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment. Freeze for one hour.  Then heat oil in a skillet and cook in the oil, about 3 minutes a side. Drain on paper towels.
