I watched a video of these shrimp burgers on Tube and thought they sounded great. I'm going to make these for dinner today with red cabbage coleslaw.
I'll cook the burgers on a charcoal grill but pan frying would be tasty too.

How to Make America's Test Kitchen's Shrimp Burger


  1. Pulse the bread in a food processor to coarse crumbs, about 4 pulses, and transfer to a bowl (you should have about 3/4 cup crumbs). Wipe the food processor clean, and pulse the shrimp until there is an even mix of finely minced and coarsely chopped pieces, about 7 pulses.
    Whisk the mayonnaise, scallions, parsley, lemon zest, salt, pepper, and cayenne together in a large bowl until uniform. Gently fold into the processed shrimp and breadcrumbs until just combined.
    Scrape the shrimp mixture onto a small baking sheet, divide it into 4 equal portions, and loosely pack each into a 1inch-thick patty. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
    Brush burgers with oil on both sides.Grill 5-7 minutes on each side on medium heat of gas grill.
  2. Note: I saw on another site,these burgers were cooked in in a 12inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat using 1-2 t.vegetable oil until shimmering. Gently lay the shrimp burgers in the skillet and cook until crisp and browned on both sides, 8 to 10 minutes.
  3. Sauce:Combine all ingredients together.Stir until well mixed.
