For the burger

  • 1 Pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 3/4 Cups stale bread crumbs or vermicelli noodles
  • 1 egg white, lightly beaten
  • 3 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 Teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil

For the spread and to assemble

  • 1/4 Cup light canola oil mayonnaise
  • 1 Teaspoon white vinegar
  • 2 Teaspoons Sriracha sauce
  • 1 1/2 avocados
  • 1 loaf whole wheat bread


For the burger

Place the shrimp in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse around 4 times until it becomes coarse chunks. If using vermicelli, boil beforehand as usual, and chop into half inch long pieces. 

Then, remove the shrimp from the food processor and put into a large bowl with breadcrumbs or vermicelli. Add egg whites, Old Bay, and scallions. Mix until combined.

Form into 4-inch patties, and place in refrigerator for 15 minutes.

Cook the patties in a large skillet, using 2 tablespoons olive oil for each batch. Cook each side for 4-5 minutes without disturbing.

For the spread and to assemble

Mix together the mayonnaise, white vinegar, and Sriracha. Set aside.

Slice the bread  into ½ inch slices, and toast. Slice the avocados, and use a quarter for each burger. Lay the avocado slices on top of the shrimp burger patty and assemble between brioche slices, spreading the mayonnaise sauce on one side.
