Prawn Burgers:
  • Buns
  • 1 ¼ lb raw peeled and de-veined prawn
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 2 green onions (finely chopped)
  • 1/3 bell pepper (finely diced)
  • ½ cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 jalapeno (finely diced)
  • 2 cups of coleslaw mix
  • 1 cup mayo
  • 2 T vinegar
  • 2 T Dijon mustard
  • 1 t celery seed
  • 3 slices ginger, (slice 1/8-inch thick)
  • 3–4 cloves garlic
  • 2 small heads shallots (¼ cup chopped)
  • 1 tsp shrimp paste (omit if vegetarian)


Prawn Burgers:
  1. Add prawns to food processors. Pulse until sticky, chunky mince. Do not over blend and create paste.
  2. Add prawns to bowl along with rest ingredients. Mix thoroughly, then divide into 4 equal parts. (prawn
    batter can be sticky, wet hands to make it easier to form burgers)
  3. Put a non stick skillet over medium heat. Cook burgers for 4-6 minutes each side being careful not to burn them
  1. Add dressing a little at a time you may not need all of it. Let coleslaw sit for 20 min in fridge to marinate for best results.
