I love a good burger! Easy to make, fun to snack on and perfect to make with a group of friends. I also tend to add anything in a burger from the standard beef to halloumi and aubergines or Korean pulled pork. I now have a new favourite – shrimp burger!

I was recently at Berlin’s latest street food craze – Bite ClubBuns Mobile were serving up a range of different burgers but it was the shrimp burger that caught my eye. It is also a great one to make at home as it’s quick and easy. I add a few chilli flakes to give it that extra kick and serve with a tartar sauce that give this burger a real fresh taste to it!


For the shrimp burgers:

800g shrimps (de-frosted)

2 shallots (peeled and finely chopped)

Small bunch of fresh parsley

75g breadcrumbs

2 tspn dried chilli flakes

Juice of half a lemon

Ground black pepper

1 egg (beaten)

2 cloves garlic (peeled and crushed)

Burger buns, watercress, rocket, avocado and jalapenos to serve

For the Tartar Sauce:

3 small gherkins (finely chopped)

2 tbpsn small capers

300g creme fraiche

Juice of half a lemon

Parsley to garnish


To make the Tartar Sauce: Put the ingredients into a small bowl and mix together. Place in the fridge until needed.

Add the shrimps, garlic, parsley and shallots to a food blender and whizz until it forms a thick, chunky paste. Pour into a large mixing bowl.

Add the breadcrumbs, lemon juice and chilli flakes to the mixing bowl. Pour in the egg and then mix so that everything is well combined. 

Roll into patties and then heat a large frying pan with 1 tbpsn sunflower oil. Once hot cook the burgers on each side for around 3-4 minutes.

Drain the burgers on some kitchen paper to remove any excess oil and then plate up the burgers with the buns and garnish. Top with the tartar sauce and enjoy!
