Shrimp Burgers – Low Carb WLS Recipe

I can honestly say that until this week- I have never had a shrimp burger. Salmon burger yes. Not shrimp. Never ordered one. And definitely never made one.

If you’re already getting a little gun shy about the title of this recipe- just hold tight. Read on my friend.

There is something about fish and shellfish that is incredibly intimidating to prepare. I can handle chicken, turkey, beef and pork any day of the week. But shrimp, scallops, halibut? Ummmm…pass. Which is probably why I like to order seafood. I like it eat it but hesitant to prepare it.

Alas my Rachael Ray magazine is getting featured again. (Shout out Rach!) There is a food processor involved, but other than that, this recipe is not complicated. It’s adapted from the original just slightly to cut back starch.

  1. This sounds amazing…I love shrimp! However, I hate mayo! Any other suggestions as an alternative to mayo I could use?

  2. If you like the avocado, I would skip the mayo altogether and it will still be delicious! The flavor is in the shrimp and the avocado would still provide the yummy topping.

  3. @owensjoye53 people love it or hate it! Only one way to find it! It does have a very soft and creamy texture (due to the healthy fat) and a little goes a very long way. Don’t be weirded out when it gets a little brown. You can usually scrape it off if it isn’t appealing to you!
