Equipment

  • Food processor fitted with blade attachment
  • Spatula
  • Plastic wrap
  • Nonstick skillet, griddle, or grill pan

Ingredients

For the burgers

  • 1 lb shrimp medium, raw, peeled, and deveined, talks removed
  • 3 Tbsp Kewpie mayo
  • 4 scallions thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup packed cilantro leaves stems removed
  • 3 cloves garlic thinly sliced
  • 2 tsp ginger paste or 1" fresh ginger, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds
  • ¾ tsp Kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • cup panko breadcrumbs divided

For serving

  • 4 burger buns
  • cup Kewpie mayo
  • 1 ½ Tbsp Sriracha
  • 2 tsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • Avocado ripe, thinly sliced
  • Lettuce optional

Instructions

  • Make the shrimp mixture. Place peeled shrimp in the bowl of a food processor fitted with blade attachment. Add 3 Tbsp Kewpie mayo, 4 thinly sliced scallions, ¼ cup cilantro, 3 cloves thinly sliced garlic, 2 tsp ginger paste, 1 Tbsp sesame oil, 1 tsp sesame seeds, ¾ tsp Kosher salt, and ¼ tsp black pepper. Pulse 5-6x, until mixture is almost paste-like and everything is well incorporated.
  • Form the shrimp burgers. Transfer the shrimp burger mixture to a bowl, then stir in ¼ cup panko breadcrumbs. Place remaining panko on a small plate. Divide the shrimp into 4 equal portions, shaping them into patties about 4” round. It can be helpful to wear kitchen gloves or wet your hands slightly to prevent sticking. Gently press each patty into the panko breadcrumbs, coating both sides very lightly. Place the shrimp burgers on a plate, then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  • Cook the shrimp burgers. Preheat an oven to 375F, then heat a nonstick skillet, griddle, or grill over medium-high heat. When hot, coat the surface with nonstick cooking spray, then add shrimp patties. Cook for 3-4 minutes per side, then transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and finish cooking for 5 minutes, or until an internal temperature of 145F has been reached. (If you’re cooking them on a griddle or grill pan, you can transfer them to a baking sheet, then pop them in the oven.)
  • Make spicy mayo. Combine ⅓ cup Kewpie mayo, 1 ½ Tbsp Sriracha, and 2 tsp soy sauce in a small bowl, then stir until well mixed.
  • Assemble, then serve. Spread a bit of spicy mayo on the bottom buns, then place a shrimp burger on top. Add lettuce, if using, then sliced avocado. Spread a bit more spicy mayo on the top buns, then place on top. Serve immediately!
