Shrimp is low in fat, which makes for a healthy burger protein. When using shrimp, however, it’s important to make sure to add the right seasonings. This recipe is packed with flavorful spices like Old Bay, making this burger not only nourishing, but delicious, too.

Just like a classic burger, the shrimp burger can be customized in any way that you like. The shrimp patty is bound together by egg whites and breadcrumbs — or try using clear rice noodles instead. Skip the cheese and layer on some onions or spicy jalapenos for added crunch. Also, swap out the twice-as-big buns for toasted slices of whole-wheat bread.

It’s easy to be in a culinary rut when you’re trying to eat a healthy diet. By replacing a few ingredients with healthier options, you can still enjoy classic favorites. Keep your meals interesting (and healthy) with this burger recipe — not only for your health, but also for your palate.
