Asian Burger Crab Rangoon Topped with Ginger Slaw

Crab cakes, crab rangoon, crab au gratin--any other words anything with crab is a favorite of mine. With this recipe the won ton is replaced by the Asian flavored hamburger and grilled.

Ingredients 

Ginger Slaw:
1 1/2 cup thinly shredded bok choy
1/2 cup grated carrots
1/4 cup mung bean sprouts
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1/2 Tbsp. sesame oil
1 Tbsp. rice wine vinegar
1/2 Tbsp. soy sauce
1/2 tsp. fresh minced ginger
1 tsp. sugar

Crab Rangoon Filling:
4 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
2 tsp. red onion, chopped
2 tsp. soy sauce
1/2 tsp. fresh ground pepper
1 green onion, sliced thin
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. chopped cilantro
4 oz. fresh crab meat

Burger:
1 Tbsp. sesame oil
1 Tbsp. Colavita Olive oil
1 Tbsp. soy sauce
2 tsp. sea salt
1 1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper
2 cloves minced garlic
2 tsp. fresh grated ginger
3/4 tsp. ground cumin
3/4 cup chopped red onion
1 1/2 pound ground chuck
6 Onion and Sesame Seed Burger Rolls

Instructions 

For the slaw: Shred the bok choy, grating the grates and tossing together. Add the mung bean sprouts. In a small bowl, mix the olive oil, sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, ginger and sugar. Pour the dressing over the salad greens. Toss to coat. Set aside until ready to assemble the burgers.

For the crab filling: Mix the cream cheese, red onion, soy sauce, fresh ground pepper, green onion, minced garlic, sea salt, and chopped cilantro together. Stir in the crab meat being careful not to break up the crab. Refrigerate until ready to assembly the burger patties.

For the burgers: Mix together the sesame oil, Colavita olive oil, soy sauce, sea salt, ground pepper, minced garlic, grated ginger, cumin and the red onion. Add the ground chuck being careful not to over work the meat.

Prepare the patties by dividing the meat and forming 12 patties. In the center of 6 of the patties scoop a portion of the crab filling. Top each with another patty and press the edges to seal. Grill the patties until done approximately 15 minutes turning only once. Toast the buns on the grill.

Assemble the burgers: The bottom bun is topped with the crab Rangoon filled burgers. Then top the burger with the Asian Ginger slaw. Place the burger top on and serve.
