Tender Grilled Shrimp Burger

I’m super excited to announce my newest partnership with Thomas’ Breads! I’ve long been a fan of their English Muffins and Bagels, so I am thrilled to be partnering with them this year!

I love grilling season. When it’s warm outside it’s the perfect time to crank up the grill and enjoy the sunshine. These burgers make it feel like you’re dining at an upscale country club, when really, you’re just chilling in your backyard.

The base of the shrimp burger patty starts with an English muffin! Just pulse the bread in your food processor until there are only fine crumbs left.

Then you’ll add in half of the shrimp, lots of herbs and spices and pulse it a few more times until it all comes together.

Place the mixture in a bowl with the other half of the shrimp and stir to combine. This way there is literally shrimp in every bite.

It is to. die. for.

Shape the mixture into patties and let them chill for about 30 minutes in the fridge. This will make them easier to handle on the grill.

I’m telling you guys, if you love shrimp, you will love these tender shrimp burgers.

The best part is when they are served on a crispy and toasty English muffin. The plump and tender shrimp and the crisp English muffin are a match made in heaven!

Don’t forget to make that sauce too. It’s filled with lemon, garlic and green onions, which really make that shrimp burger shine!

    Burgers are always so mainstream. I really like your idea with the unique use of English muffins and shrimps in a burger. I tried it and it turned out amazing. There wasn’t any need for toppings since the burgers are already so rich in taste and looks.

    I love the idea of making these on an English muffin! I can see how all of these flavors and textures together would just be amazing.

    I’m actually just getting ready to make some sandwiches for dinner using Thomas English Muffins. They are a constant in my kitchen, and I”ll make a special trip to the store just for them if I ever run out. Putting these shrimp burgers on my list of things to grill this summer. Pinned!
