Juicy, flavorful shrimp patties seared and topped with spicy aioli, lettuce and banana peppers.


  • 2 pounds peeled, deveined and tail-off shrimp, thawed if necessary (any size)
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic cloves
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon ginger paste
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 large or 2 medium jalapeño peppers, seeded and chopped
  • ¼ cup plus 1 tablespoon sliced green onion
  • 3 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons togarashi
  • 1¼ cups finely chopped romaine lettuce
  • 6 brioche hamburger buns
  • ½ cup banana pepper rings (mild or hot)


  1. Line a rimmed baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. In food processor, process 1¼ pounds (a little more than half) of shrimp, ½ teaspoon garlic, 1 tablespoon lime juice, ginger and soy sauce until nearly smooth. Add remaining shrimp, jalapeño, 2 tablespoons parsley, ¼ cup green onion and black pepper. Pulse until mixture is combined and some chunks of shrimp remain; stopping to scrape down sides of bowl if necessary.
  3. Shape shrimp mixture into 6 (4 x ½-inch) patties.
  4. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat; add patties, pressing to keep flat. Cook 8 minutes or until browned, turning once halfway to brown both sides. Reduce heat to medium after turning and cook until internal temperature reaches 145° with instant-read thermometer. Cook in batches if necessary.
  5. Wipe out skillet and place over medium-high heat; place buns cut sides down in skillet and cook 3 minutes or until toasted. Repeat with remaining buns.
  6. In medium bowl, stir mayonnaise, togarashi, and remaining ½ teaspoon garlic and 1 tablespoon each lime juice, parsley and green onion. Spread onto cut sides of buns.
  7. To serve, place burgers on bottom buns and top with banana peppers and romaine.
