Shrimp burgers are a nice change of pace from traditional homemade hamburgers. My recipe makes crunchy, crusty shrimp burgers that have lots of taste and a spicy kick. Use my Cajun seasoning recipe for Cajun recipes, or use your own spice blend.

 For the best seafood and fish recipes, always use the freshest products you can find. For this recipe, for example, buy fresh shrimp and boil or steam them yourself. You can use frozen shrimp, but your recipes won’t taste nearly as yummy.
