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.

    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.
