Shu Mai Burgers

Shu Mai Burgers

As a nutritionists, a big part of my job is listening to what can only be called food confessionals. My clients tell me about the food they ate, the food they wish they didn't eat and the food they long to eat.  Often times transference happens - a food craving is passed from my client to me.  Last week Rich (who you can also thank for the roasted chick peas) told me about a shrimp burgers he bought from Whole Foods Market.  It sounded delicious.  Not surprisingly the image of shrimp burgers became firmly implanted in my brain.  This weekend, I made a version using shrimp and pork for my family to rave reviews.


Shu Mai Burgers

1 pound cleaned, peeled raw shrimp, chopped

1/2 pound lean ground pork

1/2 cup plain panko bread crumbs

1/4 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt

1 bunch scallions, chopped

2 TB soy sauce

1 TB sriracha chili sauce (more for garnish)

6 rolls

Tomato, lettuce, onions for toppings

In a large bowl, mix together shrimp, pork, bread crumbs, yogurt, scallions, soy sauce, chili sauce.  Refrigerate for 20 - 30 minutes.  Shape into 6 burgers.  Grill over medium heat until done.  Serve on rolls with your favorite toppings.  


When my oldest son came home from school, he asked to eat the leftovers.  But there were none.  That's the sign of a delicious recipe!
