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.
