  5. Ingredients
  6. 1 pound raw peeled and deveined small shrimp
  7. 1 celery stalk with green, leafy tops, coarsely chopped
  8. 1/2 small to medium yellow skinned onion, coarsely chopped
  9. 1/2 green bell pepper, seeded and coarsely chopped
  10. 1 clove garlic
  11. A handful parsley leaves
  12. 1 tablespoon all-purpose seafood seasoning, found near fish department (recommended: Old Bay)
  13. 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper or 1 teaspoon hot sauce (recommended: Tabasco)
  14. 1 lemon, zested
  15. Salt and pepper
  16. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, 2 turns of the pan
  17. 4 English muffins, sandwich size plain or sour dough flavor
  18. 1/4 cup mayonnaise or reduced fat mayonnaise
  19. 1/4 cup chili sauce or salsa or taco sauce
  20. Butter or Boston lettuce leaves

  21. Directions

  22. Divide the shrimp in half. Put half the shrimp into a food processor and grind it up. Transfer the shrimp to a bowl using a rubber spatula. Add the whole shrimp to the bowl. Add celery, onion, bell pepper, garlic and parsley to the processor and pulse-grind it into a fine chop. Add the vegetable mixture to the shrimp. Add half a palm full of crab boil seasoning, 1/2 teaspoon cayenne, lemon zest, salt and pepper to the bowl, to season. Stir the shrimp mixture to combine.

  23. Preheat a large nonstick skillet over medium to medium high heat. Add extra-virgin olive oil, 2 turns of the pan in a slow stream. Use a large metal scoop to scoop 4 mounds of shrimp burger mixture into the pan. Gently pat down to form patties. Fry patties 3 to 5 minutes on each side, until they firm up and the shrimp turn whitish-pink.

  24. Split and toast the sandwich size English muffins. Mix mayonnaise and chili sauce, salsa or taco sauce. Place burgers on muffin bottoms and top with lettuce. Slather the top of the muffins with sauce and set in place.
