Ingredients

Burgers:
  • 1 pound medium shrimp, shelled and deveined
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro leaves
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled
  • 3/4 cup plain bread crumbs, plus more as needed
  • 1 poblano chile, roasted, peeled, stemmed, seeded, and diced
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Avocado Aioli:
  • 1 Hass avocado, halved, pitted, and peeled
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 2 medium garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1 serrano chile, stemmed, halved and seeded
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro leaves
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 hamburger buns, split in half
  • 3 medium tomatoes, sliced
  • 6 lettuce leaves or a mixture of baby lettuce leaves

Directions

In a food processor, combine the shrimp, egg, cilantro, garlic, 3/4 cup bread crumbs, poblano chile, salt, and pepper. Process until the mixture is a coarse puree. Form the mixture into 6 patties and set aside (if the mixture is too wet, add additional bread crumbs, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the mixture can be molded easily).

Put a grill pan over medium-high heat or preheat a gas or charcoal grill. Brush the patties with vegetable oil and grill until golden, about 3 minutes per side, depending on the thickness.

Avocado Aioli:

Scoop the avocado pulp into the bowl of a food processor. Add the mayonnaise, lime juice, garlic cloves, serrano chile and cilantro. Process until smooth. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

To assemble:

Serve the shrimp burgers on buns, topped with a dollop of avocado aioli, sliced tomato, and lettuce.
