Shrimp Burgers

The recipe:
1 lb shredded shrimp meat
1 heaping tablespoon of paprika
Salt and pepper to taste (perhaps half a teaspoon of each).
Two cloves of garlic, chopped finely.
1 Egg
A bit less than a complete loaf of sliced bread (minus the crusts)

Lemon juice
Tomatoes, sliced
Onions, sliced
Mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard

Mix the paprika and into the shredded shrimp meat, distributing evenly. Add salt and fresh ground pepper. Add the raw egg. Mix in the chopped garlic. Rip apart the loaf of bread. Mix, punch or do whatever it takes to intertwine the tiny bread pieces into the shredded shrimp meat (Make it look like hamburger meat as much as possible, except pink of course :) ).

Once the shredded shrimp meat has reached the perfect consistency, form out the burger patties. Rub some butter over the shrimp burgers. Place on a hot grill or grill pan. If you are indoors with a grill pan, be sure to use your stove fan. If on grill pan, lower the heat to medium high. Grill on one side until you can see the juice begin to run at the surface. Flip over and grill on the other side, again until you can see some juice coming through. Pour lemon juice over the burgers for taste.

If you like, grill the buns on remaining grill surface. Onions can be either served fresh with the shrimp burgers or sautéed a little in olive oil.

Serve shrimp burgers with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, mayo, ketchup, and or mustard.

Serves 3 to 4. Enjoy!
