It’s a warm and sunny day today! These yummy seafood burgers are perfectly light and filling to enjoy on a patio at lunch time.

I used sprouted ancient grain burger buns and they are GMO free and full of fibre. So if you’re craving a burger but you are pescatarian (like me) and want something healthier, then give this a go. The grilled pineapple blends in perfectly with the spicy shrimp patties and it’s quite wonderful. Have a great day!

Recipe: makes 4 patties

2 organic sprouted grain burger buns (I used Silver Hills Ancient Grain burger buns)
1 pack peeled raw shrimp (I used a pack of 55 pieces and it yielded 4 shrimp patties)
1 organic cage free egg
2 tbsp flaxseed meal
1 cup chopped scallions, red onions and grape tomatoes
1 garlic clove, grated
2 cups chopped baby spinach
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 small jalapeΓ±o pepper, chopped
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1.5 tbsp organic extra virgin olive oil
2 grilled pineapple slices
Cheddar cheese slices (optional)
Fresh lettuce leaves

Super easy recipe! In a food processor, puree shrimp until smooth, then transfer to a large bowl and add remaining ingredients. Mix until well incorporated, then place a skillet over medium heat and add olive oil. Scoop 1/3 of the shrimp mixture into the skillet and flatten out the top. Fry the patties and flip when edges begin to brown. When ready, grill you pineapples and build your burger. Enjoy!
