While walking through the market yesterday, they had shelled rock shrimp on sale. Not something I see often so picked up a pound and a half. Since fresh corn was on sale a grab a few of those as well.
I took some of the shrimp and some little Patagonian scallops to mix together to make burgers.
Started out by rolling an ear of corn over the gas stove to get some color and flavor, cut the kernels off and put them in a bowl to cool. Finely diced an onion and a couple of small garlic cloves and sweated those down and added it to the corn.
Put the scallops in the food processor and before it got too ground up pulled a small handful to add it to a bowl then finished grinding the rest to a paste and added that as well. Next came the shrimp which I coarsely chopped and added that to the mix. Then a beaten egg, a little dried bread crumb, some of the corn/onion/garlic mix, chopped poarsley and cilantro, green onion, a squeeze of a 1/2 a lime, a small amount (maybe an 1/8 tsp) of some very finely diced lemongrass and kafir lime leaf, salt and pepper and mixed it up well.
Formed into patties and coated with more bread crumbs and browned in olive oil. Made a Thai chili paste and shiracha mayo to spread on the bread and dressed the burger with lettuce and tomato. Some homemade grain mustard would have been killer as well. Actually I put the mustard on the left overs for lunch today. It's a toss up??
