Happy First Day of Summer! I hope you had an amazing weekend – ours was pretty awesome. Unfortunately Big Guy got stuck in Atlanta on Friday evening for a little while due to weather but other than that, we spent the whole weekend hanging out. We pooled it, we celebrated “appy” hour, we laughed, we bought a new umbrella for the back deck (maybe the best party of the weekend), we went on a long walk and played yard games. Oh, and we ate some epic food. Like this shrimp burger.
You guys! I can’t even explain how delicious this burger is. Like, I’m speechless. And I’m warning you, I may make this again very, very soon.
The only thing that would make this burger even better would be local shrimp from our favorite seafood shack at the beach.
Shrimp is chopped in a food processor and then mixed with Panko breadcrumbs, an egg, some dijon mustard, garlic, salt and pepper, dried basil, smoked paprika and onion powder. The burgers are cooked in a little olive oil on the stovetop.
The bun is a Hawaiian hamburger bun that I cooked in a little butter on the stovetop. On top of the bun is a chipotle cream that’s simply sour cream, chipotle sauce and lime juice. So smoky, so good. After the sauce, a shrimp burger. And then some sliced avocado for creaminess. And finally, I piled on some of the fresh salsa that’s a mix of strawberries, pineapple, red onion, cilantro, toasted coconut (!!!!) and lime juice. So refreshing!
This burger is everything.
