Jay’s Shrimp Burgers with Wasabi Aioli

Last night I made Jay’s Shrimp Burgers with Wasabi Aioli.

Jay is a fellow EggHead (Big Green Egg enthusiast) and we were lucky enough to eat his Shrimp Burgers at the Sunshine State Eggfest in March 2013.

You can find his recipe HERE and HERE.

I used 1 pound of Key West Pink Shrimp.

After you peel and devein them:

Put half of the shrimp in a food processor.

I used the chopper attachment that came with my Viking Hand Blender.

Blend the shrimp, add an egg, and blend some more.

Coarsely chop the remaining shrimp and put them into a bowl with the processed shrimp.

Next add the cilantro (or parsley), panko, salt and pepper.

And all this time you thought I didn’t own a measuring cup.

Gently combine everything together:

Now form the mixture into patties:

Put the burgers in the refrigerator for at least one hour to help them firm up.

For the wasabi aioli you’ll need an egg, a lemon, garlic,  salt, soy sauce, olive oil, and wasabi.

I started the wasabi aioli the same way I do when I make tarragon aioli for crab cakes.

Put an egg, garlic, lemon juice, and salt in a blender or food processor — I use an immersion hand blender.

Blend everything together and slowly add olive oil as you blend.

Blend until you get a mayonnaise like consistency.

And set aside until you’re ready to eat.

Side Note: Jay starts with a cup of mayonnaise so his way is a lot simpler and faster.

If you’re cooking on a Big Green Egg, you’ll want to stabilize the egg at 350F and cook with a raised grid.

You can also cook them inside on a cast iron grill pan or skillet.

Cook about 3 or 4 minutes on each side.

Hawaiian rolls work really well with these because the sweetness contrasts nicely with wasabi aioli.

Spread some of the aioli on both sides of the bun and add the shrimp burger.

These would be perfect for a party since everything can be prepped ahead of time.

    I never thought that I would like a shrimp burger until I tried one that Mike Davis (the World Champion BBQ Mike Davis, lol) made and found out I was wrong! They are tasty.

    Yours look like they turned out great.

  2. Michelle L. says:

    These were FANTASTIC! I made them exactly as you described and the end result was a request for a repeat (sooner rather than later). Thank you so much for sharing ;-)

  3. Love this idea. Pinned and thanks for the recipe.
