- 12 medium-sized shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 12 sea scallops
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1 Tablespoon chopped fresh ginger
- 1 Cup chopped scallions
- 1 Tablespoon sesame oil
- 2 Tablespoons mirin
- 3 Tablespoons soy sauce
- Vegetable oil
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Combine the shrimp and scallops in the bowl of a food processor and chop coarsely — do not overprocess. Transfer the seafood to a bowl and mix with the garlic, ginger, scallions, sesame oil, mirin, and soy sauce. Mold into four 1 ½-inch-thick burgers.
Heat a little vegetable oil in a sauté pan over medium heat and cook the burgers on both sides until golden, about 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer to a baking sheet and cook in the oven until cooked through, 10 minutes.
