Shrimp Burgers with Slaw

Posted by Brette in Food

I like how this month’s Martha Stewart Living has some recipes in it that are more relaxed – casseroles and sandwiches. I was excited to try the shrimp burgers (p. 118 in January Living). My eyes started to roll back into my head once I saw it was a three part recipe (it seems many of Martha’s recipes require several parts, or at least some sort of chilling or freezing component). I’m happy to report this was easy to make.

The yogurt sauce was simple to mix up. The slaw required chopping up of avocado, mango and cabbage. Easy.  You mix some yogurt sauce into that and it’s done.

The shrimp burger was easy too. You food process some shrimp, add it to egg and coarsely chopped shrimp and mix it with the yogurt sauce and breadcrumbs. Plop it on a baking sheet and that’s it.

You serve the burgers with pitas and the slaw. I liked this a lot, although I thought it was a little bland. It needed something – more lemon maybe? Some dill? I don’t know, but it just needed some more flavor. It was really good though as it was and I enjoyed it. It was definitely something different to make for dinner and it did not take hours to

prepare.  The burgers stayed together pretty well and nothing dripped or oozed out of the pita. Thumbs up on this one.
