Island Oasis Shrimp Burger

If you're looking for a lighter alternative to your typical burger but don't want to skimp on flavor, my island oasis shrimp burgers are just the ticket! A shrimp patty provides a nice salty contrast to the sweetness of the mango salsa. The crab boil and jalapenos add just the right amount of kick, while the focaccia "bun" provides the perfect wrapper without overpowering the other flavors. Grab a glass of Sutter Home Sauvignon Blanc and enjoy a Tropical Shrimp Burger al fresco with only the sounds of the waves and the wind in the palm trees.

Ingredients 

Mango Salsa:
1 small mango diced
1 large tomato diced
1/3 cup chopped red onion
1/4 minced fresh cilantro
1 small jalapeno diced
1 avocado diced
2 1/2 Tbs lime juice
Patties:
2 lbs fresh shrimp diced
1/2 cup sour cream
2 Tbs teriyaki sauce
2 eggs
2 cups panco bread crumbs
2 tsp minced fresh parsley
1 Tbs crab boil
pepper to taste
Buns:
6 bun size focaccia bread sections, sliced horizontally and lightly toasted on grill

Instructions 

You'll need to make the mango salsa an hour in advance to allow the flavors to marry together. Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl except store in the fridge or cooler. Preheat gas grill to medium-high. To make the patties combine shrimp, eggs, sour cream, teriyaki, panco bread crumbs, parsley, crab boil, and black pepper. Mix by hand in large bowl and form into 6 equal size patties. Brush the grill rack with oil and grill patties until the shrimp turns whitish pink, approx 3 minutes on each side. To assemble place a shrimp patty on each bottom of lightly toasted focaccia, top with a generous spoonfull of the mango salsa mixture and cover with the top focaccia sections. Serves 6. Enjoy!!!
