I went Beyond The Bayou with my Burger and Fries entry this time! My Blackened Cajun Shrimp Burgers with Remoulade Sauce and Crispy Okra Fries are a delicious combo of Cajun inspired flavors. The shrimp burgers are crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside and they get a kick from my spicy shortcut Remoulade sauce - made from Hellmann’s tangy Tartar Sauce and naturally sweet Hellmann’s Ketchup. This quick and easy sauce goes on the burger and is your dip for an unexpected side dish. Okra fries! Roasted to a crispy perfection, you’ll keep reaching for more!
Blackened Cajun Shrimp Burgers with Remoulade Sauce and Crispy Okra Fries
1 pound peeled and de-veined medium shrimp
1/3 cup roasted garlic flavored panko breadcrumbs
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon Cajun blackening seasoning
2 cloves minced garlic
2 green onions, thinly sliced
¾ cup Hellmann’s Tartar Sauce
2 Tablespoons Hellmann’s Ketchup
2 Tablespoons chili garlic sauce
1 pound fresh okra
2 Tablespoons canola oil
½ teaspoon Cajun blackening seasoning
2 Tablespoons butter
4 onion hamburger buns, toasted
4 lettuce leaves
4 slices red onion
4 slices tomato
Pre heat the oven to 400 degrees.
To make the burger patties coarsely chop half of the shrimp. Put the remaining shrimp in a food processor and pulse until smooth. Combine both shrimp in a large bowl with the breadcrumbs, lemon zest, Cajun seasoning, garlic, green onion and egg and mix. Refrigerate for 10 minutes, and then form into 4 patties. Refrigerate 20 more minutes.
While the burger patties are chilling make the remoulade sauce. In a small bowl whisk together the tartar sauce, ketchup and chili garlic sauce. Set in the fridge to chill.
Slice each okra pod in half lengthwise. In a large mixing bowl, toss the okra with the canola oil and Cajun blackening seasoning until evenly coated. Lay the okra on a large foil lined baking sheet and place in the oven for 20 minutes.
Heat the butter in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the burgers, about 3 minutes per side.
To assemble, spread each bun top and bottom with remoulade sauce. Place lettuce, red onion, tomato, a shrimp burger patty and a bun top on each bun bottom.
Pour the remaining remoulade sauce into a small bowl and serve with the okra fries and assembled burgers.
