This recipe was requested by one of our Newfoundland viewers following Bonita’s Kitchen, I’m trying to get to as many requests as possible plus a few of my favourites. I have been making these shrimp cakes also known as shrimp patties, for years along with cod fish cakes, corned beef cakes, crab cakes. I always served them on its own or with fresh homemade bread, or toutons. But when I received a request for shrimp burgers I just loved it so much I wanted to share this one right away so everyone can get to enjoy them all summer long.
You can serve these delicious Shrimp Burgers with a freshly made loss salad, frys, steamed vegetables or corn on the cob. I have a dressing recipe I love to spread over the bun made up of seafood sauce and miracle whip mixed together then spread over your burger bun. I’m also topping my shrimp pattie with Pickled Onions I’ve shared a link on how to make it, if you like to use pickles or tomatoes this will work lovely too.
I remember when I was just a kid and my dad would love getting fresh seafood from the fishermen when they stopped at the wharf, those days are gone but you can buy locally at the seafood counters and they buy from our local fishermen. I guess it’s not the same as going on the wharf and buying or trading but before buying your seafood at the supermarket check to see if you got a local seafood stand this supports your community.
So remember everytime you make your own food in advance or the day of it gets a little more easier for you and the rewards are endless. I can’t thank you enough for taking the time to read my blog and make any of our Traditional Newfoundland Recipes and also listening to my stories. From my kitchen to your thank you once again for visiting Bonita’s Kitchen.Add to Favourites
