  • 1 Skillet


For the Burger:

  • 2 burger buns
  • 2 avocados sliced
  • 1 lettuce chopped

For the Shrimp Patties:

  • 1 pound shrimp peeled
  • 1 onion roughly chopped
  • 1 green onion roughly sliced
  • 1 egg beaten
  • cup bread crumbs
  • cup parsley roughly chopped
  • cup cilantro roughly chopped
  • ½ teaspoon salt

For the Garlic Sauce:

  • 1 cup plain yogurt

  • 2 cloves garlic grated
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon cilantro finely chopped
  • teaspoon salt


  • Roughly chop one half of shrimps and leave aside.

  • Add in the chopped shrimps and stir.

  • Heat up the oil in a frying pan over medium heat and start frying the patties. Cook each side for 4-5 minutes. Once cooked, leave the patties aside on a paper towel to drain excess oil.
