Shrimp Patties

  • 1 1/2 lbs raw Shrimp peeled, deveined and cleaned
  • 1 1/4 cups Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup yellow onion roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup bell pepper roughly chopped
  • 1/3 cup cilantro chopped
  • 1 lime zested and juiced
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 whole Habanero pepper deseeded
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground allspice
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger

Shrimp Burgers

  • 4 hamburger buns
  • 1 avocado peeled and sliced, for topping
  • 1 tbsp butter

Mango Slaw

  • 2 cups broccoli
  • 1 ripe mango peeled and sliced into thin strips
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  • 3 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp honey
  • Salt and pepper to taste


For the Shrimp Patties

  • Make sure the shrimp are cleaned and all shells and tails are removed. Roughly chop the onions, bell peppers, and cilantro. Peel the garlic, and seed the Habanero pepper. Zest and juice the lime.
  • Set out a food processor. Add the onions, bell peppers, cilantro, garlic, and Habanero. Add the lime zest, but reserve the juice for the slaw. Pulse a couple of times to chop the veggies into small pieces. Add in the shrimp. Pulse a few more times to cut the shrimp into small pieces. You don't need to puree the mixture; pulse just a little so you can still see pieces of shrimp.
  • In a large mixing bowl, mix the shrimp mixture, panko breadcrumbs, egg, salt, allspice, and ginger. Mix until smooth.
  • Set a large skillet on the stove top. Add the oil (or butter) then set on medium heat. Form the shrimp mixture into 4 equal patties, just slightly larger than the hamburger buns.
  • Gently move the patties to the hot skillet, and cook for 5-6 minutes per side. They should be golden brown.

For the Mango Slaw

  • While the shrimp patties are cooking, prepare the mango salsa. In a medium mixing bowl, add the broccoli slaw, mango strips, green onion, lime juice, mayonnaise, and honey. Mix until smooth. Then taste, and salt and pepper as needed. Set aside.

Assemble Shrimp Burgers

  • Open the buns and carefully move one patty to each bun. Top with mango slaw and a few slices of avocado. Place the bun on top and serve immediately.
