Friday evening while trying to figure out what to cook – it had to be
something easy and quick – shrimp burgers popped into my head.  We had
shrimp in the freezer, whole wheat burger buns, and fresh herbs in the yard.
 I googled some recipes, and combined what I liked from my favorites, and
ended up making shrimp burgers for my Mom, husband and myself Saturday
My mom said the burgers were “Delicious!”  My husband
said “Babe, these are very tasty! They were GREAT!”  It was my
first time having a shrimp burger, let alone making them.  Since they were
a hit, I will definitely make them again.
I didn’t measure anything out really.  I’m sorry, but this is what
I used.
1 lb Raw shrimp (deveined)
Fresh Chives finely chopped I’d say it came out to about 2 tablespoons
Fresh Parsley finely chopped 
3 cloves garlic finely chopped
1/2 small onion finely chopped 
1 teaspoon Cajun Seasoning (make your own or buy it)
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt (to your liking)
2 eggs
1 cup panko bread crumb flakes
1/4 cup whole wheat flour (or white)
1 tablespoon olive oil
Heat Calphalon non-stick pan on medium 
Use a food processor (I used my Vitamix) to chop up the shrimp.
 Set aside in the refrigerator while you mix the batter.
In a bowl, mix two eggs, parsley, garlic, chives, onions, cajun
seasoning, and salt.  After that is mixed, add the shrimp, and mix.
 Add the flour, then 3/4 cup of  the panko flakes.  Use your
hands to mix together.
Form mixture into patties.  Dust patties into 1/4 cup (remainder of
panko flakes) on each side.
Add the olive oil to the pan. 
Add patties & cook for about 5 minutes on each side
