2Next, add the shrimp, cilantro, chives and garlic to the food processor and pulse until it becomes a textured paste.

When grill is ready, spray cooking oil on the patties (or oil your grill) and cook for approximately 3-5 minutes per side, until they are a crispy golden brown.

5Remove and serve on a bun, or naked with your favorite side dish, salsa or yogurt blend.
