I love this recipe served as a burger or without a bun served alone with the sauce.

Make them into a "two-bite" size and serve as appetizers!

The Prep time shown includes time for the shrimp to chill in the refrigerator!

You can also do these on the grill! Use a grate plate and sear burgers quickly on each side over direct heat. Move burgers off-heat, close lid and cook for 20 to 25 minutes until meat thermometer reads 145 degrees.

How to Make Shrimp Burgers

  3. Add the processed shrimp and the chopped shrimp to the bowl and mix together until well blended.
  4. Shape into cakes (patties) of equal size* and coat in remaining 1 cup of bread crumbs.
  5. Place on a plate in a single layer, cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or overnight.
  6. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and bake cakes for 25 minutes on lowest oven rack, turning cakes half way thru cooking time.

    Serve with Louis Dressing or sauce of your choosing.
  7. *Make cakes into small, bite size patties if using for appetizers, or large patties if using for a main course.
  8. Help make this healthier by using low fat or fat free salad dressing.
