Po’ Boy Shrimp Burger with Creole Remoulade

Po'Boy Shrimp Burger 11 (2)


BURGERS, Weekend food “Par excellence”.


Ok, that sounds kinda fancy but this burger kinda is.

My Hamburger is a combo of a Po’ boy Sandwich and a Burger. Best of both worlds if you ask me.

A Po’ boy is a traditional sandwich from Louisiana and it almost always consists of meat or fried seafood, this one features shrimp. Normally the Po Boy is served on baguette-like New Orleans French bread, but since I am here and not in New Orleans I am serving it on my  Hamburger Buns  which have a tiny sweetness to them, almost like a brioche .

Then there’s the problem (at least for me) that the shrimp always falls out of a Po Boy  at every bite, it’s so annoying. So I have decided to turn this “Po’ Boy” into a burger. I mean it really makes sense to me. All the deliciousness of a Po’ Boy, but in a patty that stays put.

And as with all crazy good sandwiches, there’s the sauce. And what a sauce it is…an incredible Creole Remoulade that will blow your socks off. Good with anything from fish to steak, but incredible on this burger. The ingredient list may seem long but once you’ve tried it, you’ll make it again and again.

Let’s start with the sauce.

Just mix all the ingredients in a bowl and set aside so the flavours can mingle.

For the Burgers;

Place shrimp in a food processor . Pulse once or twice. Add the egg (or orgran egg replacer),  chopped cilantro,  garlic ,  chili, Panko breadcrumbs (or Gluten Free Panko),  shallot,  sea salt and a few twists with the pepper mill.

Pulse a few times but leave chunky, you don’t want a paté.

Form burgers and chill for 1 hour (covered).

Heat oil in a heavy skillet.

When very hot, fry the shrimp burgers until golden and crispy , about 3 minutes per side, depending on thickness. Drain on paper towels.

To assemble, Spread bottom with  remoulade,  add some arugula or shredded cabbage and sliced onion, pickles and place a burger on top or two (ehem). Top with some more sauce. Put the top of the bun on and let the party begin.

Myra. XO 😊

    I made this for dinner and it was amazing. Would also like to try with different fish or chicken.

      Thank you so much, I’m so happy to hear that. Yes, me too. I was thinking maybe Salmon. But Chicken should be nice for sure. Thank you for stopping by.

      Thank you Suzanne. It made perfect sense to me to make a burger out of it. I want the shrimp in my mouth and not on the floor, haha

    Brilliant idea, this combination! I did not know what a po’ boy is. But now I know! Looks great. I have to keep this in mind for further burger experiments!
