We love hamburgers!!!! Especially during the spring and summer months when it’s heating up and we want to be outside with the grill. I told Ludmilla that I really wanted to make a different burger. I think we accomplished just that. Craving a “fish” burger, I decided to go with shrimp!! We loved it!! The combination of spices went so well with the avocado and mango….then the chipotle mayo!!!! It’s spicy, creamy and fruity all at the same time. It’s a bite of summer when you have the heat of the shrimp with chipotle mayo mixed with the fatty avocado and the sweetness and juicyness of the mango. Welcome Summer!!
1 lb. large shrimp, peeled, deveined and divided
1/2 c. yellow onion, chopped
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
2 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. coriander
1 tsp. smoked paprika
2 large egg whites
kosher salt and pepper
1/4-1/2 c. bread crumbs
1 medium yellow onion, sliced and sautéed
chipotle mayonnaise or your favorite condiment
brioche burger buns
In a food processor, place half of the shrimp and the chopped onion and pulse until finely minced. Chop remaining shrimp into thirds. In a large bowl mix the chopped shrimp, the pulsed shrimp mixture, cayenne, cumin, garlic powder, coriander, smoked paprika, salt and pepper and egg whites. Add 1/4 c. breadcrumbs and combine until mixture feels sticky and holds together. If needed, add more breadcrumbs. Form into patties.
