Shrimp Burger

Nothing beats a good shrimp burger right?

Shrimp Burger 

1 lb shrimp
1 tsp black pepper
3 green onions
1 tbsp parsley
2 shallots
1 egg
1 tbsp roasted and fine ground coconut
½ tbsp capers
1 tsp bean paste
¾ cup bread crumbs
pinch of salt

Simple: buy shrimp with the shells on them.
Remove the shells.
Chop them up
Chop everything else that is choppable up.
Mix it all together.
Fry off.

Makes 6-10 patties.

I dressed mine with Korean mushroom pickle, arugula, roasted red pepper, a spicy homemade aioli, and avocado.  Onion sprouts are also delicious.


  1. What kind of shrimp would one need to purchase? Can you use jumbo ones? I'm not really much of a shrimp expert.

  2. I don't think the kind of Shrimp are that important Jeremy, but I'd go with smaller shrimp if I had the choice.

    Here's why:

    Smaller shrimp are generally cheaper, sweeter, and have more flavour. Bigger shrimp are pricier because they look pretty, but you're making them into a paste anyway, right?
