  Shrimp Burgers

  • 2 pounds shrimp, peeled, deveined and divided
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 1 bird's eye chili, seeded and chopped
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup panko
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated lemon zest (from 1 lemon)
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 1/4 cup chopped scallions
  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 6 potato slider buns
  • Pickled Cabbage Slaw (recipe above)
  • 1 handful cilantro leaves, to garnish


    For The Pickled Cabbage Slaw

  1. Whisk together the vinegar, sugar, soy sauce, water, salt and chili in a large bowl. Whisk until the salt and sugar are completely dissolved; set aside.
  2. In a non-reactive container, toss together the carrots, radish, cucumbers, cabbage and cilantro.
  3. Pour the brine over the vegetables and cover. Refrigerate for 1 hour or up to 1 week. The slaw will become more pickled as it rests.

   For The Shrimp Burgers

  1. Place 1½ pounds of the shrimp into a food processor. Add celery, eggs, chili pepper and soy sauce, and pulse until there is a mix of finely minced and coarsely chopped pieces of shrimp, about five 5-second pulses.
  2. Gently fold the panko, lemon zest, parsley and scallions into the shrimp mixture to combine. Chop remaining 1/2-pound shrimp into 1/2-inch pieces and fold into the mixture. Season with 1/2 teaspoon of salt and ½ teaspoon of pepper. Shape mixture into 6 (five ounce) balls.
  3. Heat 1½ teaspoons oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until oil begins to shimmer. Place 3 shrimp balls in pan, flattening with a spatula to 1/2-inch thickness. Reduce heat to medium and cook until the edges turn pink and the burger looks golden, about 3-4 minutes. Turnover and cook 3 minutes, or until done. Repeat with remaining oil and shrimp balls.

  To Serve

  1. Place the burgers on the potato buns, add Pickled Cabbage Slaw and cilantro, and serve.
