Shrimp Burger

  • Prep: 10 min
  • Total: 25 min

  • Fish


NOTE: this recipe makes one shrimp burger!

- 8 shrimp (cut into pieces) 
- ¼ tsp onion powder 
- ¼ tsp garlic powder
- ⅛ tsp Pimenton
- 1 ½ tbsp flour
- salt & peper to taste

- 1 burger bun (I had the delux burger bun from Albert Heijn)
- a bit of lettuce (finely, chopped)
- 1 slice of American cheese or cheddar

For the coating of the Shrimp Burger
- ⅛ cup flour
- 1 egg (beaten)
- Panko breadcrumbs
- 1 or 2 tbsps of a neutral oil for frying

For the Tartar Sauce:
- half of a small shallot or ¼ of a big shallot (finely, chopped)
- 4 tbsp mayonnaise (I used Hellmann’s) 
- ½ tsp mustard
- ⅛ tsp garlic powder
- 2 cornichons (tiny pickles)
- 1 tbsp pickle juice
- salt & pepper to taste


  1. Cut the shrimp into small pieces and add the spices, the flour and season with salt & pepper to taste.

  2. Form a burger and coat it with a beaten egg and Panko breadcrumbs. Repeat this process once more to get a firm burger.

  3. Add oil to a non-stick pan and cook the shrimp burger on medium heat. This will take 3-4 minutes on each side. Chill for 10-15 minutes before serving.

  4. While your Shrimp Burger is cooking, prepare your Tartar Sauce. Finely chop your shallot and cornichons. Then place them in a bowl, followed by the rest of the ingredients. Mix well and taste for seasoning.

  5. When your Shrimp Burger is done chilling, assemble your burger. Toast the buns. Place a slice of cheese on the bottom side of the bun, add your burger, your lettuce and a dollop of Tartar sauce. Enjoy!
