Has got me wanting to try them. So tonight's the night. I just finished forming a dozen of these little babies for my wife and I to have for dinner this evening. Getting anxious! Anticipation is half the fun, right?

    Jay (ssn686) has been serving those shrimp burgers for years at the Eggtoberfest After-Party and everyone loves them. So, in following with the principles of "How To Win Friends And Influence People" we decided to do what Jay does... (He's got lots of friends).

    But since we didn't want to throw the entire Texas Eggfest into a crazy frenzy we opted for doing them at the After Party. Oh yea, we only had about a pound of shrimp and a few Hawaiian Rolls and that would not have been easily distributed among the 350 obviously hungry souls there. Less than twenty at the After-Party sucked 'em down in seconds.

    There are a few Eggheads out there who's names are synonymous with a certain dish. This is Jay's number one, and he's got a couple’a more.

    I'm just happy to have been able to introduce them to the Texas Eggfest population.

    You definitely won't hesitate to invite friends over for this meal... It's one of the better ones that people can't forget.

    Here is Jay's recipe:


    1 pound raw shrimp (cleaned, shelled & deveined)
    1 egg
    1/4 cup finely chopped parsley or cilantro
    1/2 cup Panko Crumbs
    Kosher salt
    Freshly ground Black Pepper
    Wasabi Mayonnaise (recipe follows)

    In a food processor, process half the shrimp with the egg. Coarsely chop the remaining shrimp and put it into a bowl. Add the processed shrimp
    & parsley/cilantro, panko crumbs, salt & pepper to taste (I usually use about 2 tablespoons of DP Shakin' the Tree rub instead of S&P).
    Form the mixture into patties (we have found that a 1.5 inch square cookie cutter works real well for this. Put the cookie cutter on freezer or
    waxed paper and fill with the shrimp mixture, then gently pull off the cookie cutter). After the burgers are formed, put them in the refrigerator
    for at least one hour to help firm them up.

    Egg Setup & Cooking:
    Stabilize Egg at 350 with a raised grid. Place the burgers on a perforated pan such as a pizza pan with holes or disposable fine mesh screen.
    Place pan on raised grid and grill until cooked through, turning once, about 3 to 4 minutes per side. Remove the burgers to a "bun" that has been
    spread with the Wasabi Mayo(Hawaiian rolls are what we have used most often as their sweetness contrasts nicely with Wasabi Mayo. T
    hese can be split to serve as open face or as a "normal" burger). Add more Wasabi Mayo on top of the shrimp burgers.
    Leave as whole or cut in half or quarters depending on how many you are trying to serve. We typically do 3 pounds of shrimp at a time which should yield about 24 burgers 1.5" square.

    Wasabi Mayonnaise:
    1 cup Mayonnaise
    1/4 cup prepared Wasabi (available in the Asian section of the supermarket)
    1 tsp. freshly grated Ginger
    2 Tbls. Soy Sauce
    1 tsp. sugar
    pinch salt

    Mix all the ingredients together. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

    A friend gave me a "slider press" a couple years ago for Christmas. I've never used it until today. Made super shrimp burgers. They were wonderful.. Will definitely make again soon. Thanks Spring Chicken and Lawn Ranger for making me want to do this. Twelve years Egging and still trying new things.

    Thanks Bobby! Gonna try these in the next few weeks.

  • Quick question! Do you use the Italian Panko Crumbs or just the plain?
  • GandolfGandolf Posts: 882
    I used plain.
  • Thanks, I will try these soon.
