These Tender Grilled Shrimp Burgers are loaded with flavor, plump shrimp and will seriously steal your heart. They’re absolutely perfect for kicking off grilling season!
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!
