Shrimp Burgers with Spicy Tartar Sauce........

During Lent we are all thinking of new ideas for supper. Here is a perfect Friday night dinner. Or maybe you would rather have it for lunch. But don't forget the spicy sauce to go with it.
Shrimp Burgers
6 Burger Buns
1 1/3 lbs raw shrimp, peeled and de-veined
1/3 mayo
1 tsp salt
1/2 black pepper
2 Tbsp butter
Finely grind 2 burger buns in a food processor (1 1/2 cups crumbs) and transfer to a bowl. Pulse 1 1/4 lbs of peeled, de-veined shrimp in processor. Not too fine, you want chunks of shrimp in it. Toss with crumbs, 1/3 cup mayo, 1 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp black pepper. Form into 4 patties. Melt 2 Tbsp butter in a skillet and cook over medium heat, turning once, until cooked through, about 9 minutes all together. Serve on toasted or grilled buns with iceberg lettuce and tartar sauce. 
This makes 4 servings.
Spicy Tartar Sauce
1 cup mayonnaise

2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley 
2 Tbsp horseradish (optional or to taste)
1 1/2 tsp Cajun seasoning
1 1/2 tsp lemon juice 
2 tsp onion, finely minced
2 tsp dill pickle, finely minced
1/4 teaspoon paprika
Stir together all ingredients in a bowl. Cover and chill 30 minutes to 24 hours. Makes 1 cup of sauce.
Till next time......
