Yield: 6 servings
Community Recipe from


  • 2 pound(s) medium shrimp shelled, deveined, and chopped
  • 1/4 cup(s) mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon(s) vidalia onion grated
  • 1 teaspoon(s) worcestershire sauce
  • 1 pinch(s) cayenne
  • salt and pepper
  • peanut oil
  • 1 cup(s) bread crumbs
  • iceberg lettuce
  • 2 tomatoes sliced
  • 6 hamburger buns
  • 3/4 cup(s) tartar sauce


  1. 1. Put shrimp, mayonnaise, onions, worcestershire, cayenne, and salt and pepper to taste into a medium bowl and mix well. Shape shrimp mixture into 6 wide, flat patties and put side by side on a baking sheet. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 and up to 4 hours.

  2. 2. Pour oil into a medium wide pot to a depth of 2" and heat over medium heat until hot but not smoking, 350º on a candy thermometer. Meanwhile, put bread crumbs into a dish and carefully dredge patties. Working in batches to avoid crowding the pot, fry patties, turning once, until deep golden and crisp, 3-5 minutes. Transfer patties with a slotted spatula to paper towels to drain.

  3. 3. Serve shrimp burgers with lettuce and tomatoes on tartar sauce-slathered buns, with onion rings on the side, if you like.
