How to make it

  • In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the onions, celery, bell pepper, and garlic. Cook, stirring, until soft for about 6 minutes.
  • Transfer the mixture to a large mixing bowl and let cool slightly. Add the chopped shrimp, green onions, 2 of the eggs, seasonings and 1 cup of the bread crumbs. Stir to mix well. Divide into 8 equal portions and form into patties.
  • Put the flour in a shallow bowl and season with 1 teaspoon of the Cajun seasoning. Put the remaining 1 cup bread crumbs in another shallow bowl and season with the remaining 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning. Put the beaten egg in yet another shallow bowl with a little water and beat lightly.
  • Heat the oil in a large skillets over medium heat. Dredge each patty first in the flour, then in the egg mixture, then in the bread crumbs, turning to coat completely and shaking off any excess. Cook 4 patties at a time skillet, until golden brown, 5 to 6 minutes on each side. Drain on paper towels.
  • To serve, spread both sides of each toasted bun with some of the tartar sauce, place a patty on the bottom half of the bun, dress with shredded cabbage and tomatoes, and top with the other bun half.

    Fantastic! I've never had a homemade shrimp burger before. It's always been the fast food joint ones or the ice cream truck ones. This IS NOT like those. This is restaurant quality. I didn't know, or most likely didn't remember, that my missus usually only has 1 or 2 bites of mine, but never orders them because she likes the taste, but gets sick of them quickly. This was different, we both loved them and ate the entire patty. I cut the recipe in half (4 patties), with the intentions of having them for left overs tomorrow at dinner (noon, as it should be), so we will learn how they are reheated, but I suspect they will be great. It is virtually impossible for me to follow a recipe without substitutions because of either necessity or personal tastes, but this one was followed pretty close and I don't think my changes affected the outcome too much. I have already been requested to remake this the next time my daughters are home. Thank you for a great recipe Luisa.

    Holy cow, or should I say holy shrimp!, this was good! I cut this recipe down to two patties which was quite a challenge but I did it. The work was well worth it. I did everything as written except I had no celery so I made up the difference with more green pepper and scallions. I had some butter lettuce I wanted to use so I did that as well. I tasted the remaining burger on its own and the flavor is so wonderful it definitely could be eaten plain. I really enjoyed this. Thank you for sharing, Luisa. I added my picture and a thread in IMI 9/28/13.
