Try These Freezer-Friendly Shrimp Burgers For A Healthy Alternative
For this meal, I use avocado, sour cream, jalapeno pepper, cilantro, lime juice, minced garlic, salt, black pepper, shrimp, bread crumbs, eggs, scallion, bell pepper, parsley, Cajun spice mix, paprika, and burger buns.
You can replace some of these ingredients with things like cream cheese, chili peppers, garlic powder, stale bread, onion, mushroom, taco seasoning, cumin, and potato bread.
I suggest you start by using a food processor or blender. Add the avocado, sour cream, jalapeno, cilantro, lime juice, garlic, salt, and pepper. Blend until the mix is smooth, and place in the refrigerator.
You can use this same food processor to blend half the shrimp until it is pureed. Cut up the remaining shrimp into two or three pieces.
In another bowl, mix the pureed shrimp, the rest of the shrimp, breadcrumbs, egg, scallion, bell pepper, parsley, garlic, lime juice, Cajun seasoning, paprika, salt, and pepper. Use your hands to form this mixture into patties, and place them on a baking sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes and serve in a bun with some sauce.
Freezing and Unfreezing the Burgers
If you want to refrigerate your burgers, let them cool down, and store them in an airtight container for up to three days. Reheat them in the oven for 10 minutes or more.
To freeze your shrimp burgers, cook as directed, and save each burger patty in a separate tin foil. You can store the sauce in a separate container, but include the avocado pit as well. Thaw overnight when you are ready to eat them, and warm in the oven for about 10 minutes.
