Whole Food's Shrimp Burger

I had never seen this tequila and lime shrimp burgers before at Whole Foods, but a lady next to me was ordering them and told me how fabulous they were.. So I grabbed one and brought it home to be cooked as an appetizer to share with my husband.

What I did is, I prepared a little salsa to use as a dressing, I like my shrimp with extra lemon, so I chopped half of a white onion, then I took 6 cherry tomatoes and cut them in four, put all the chopped veggies in a bowl with some olive oil, salt, pepper and I squeezed a whole lemon on top of it and let it rest while I cooked the burger.

In a medium size pan I seared 3 pieces of bacon, without discarding the bacon oil, I added a tiny bit of olive oil and in medium heat I placed the shrimp burger to cook.... I let it brown on each side ( 4 - 5 minutes) and then I baked them for 15 minutes on the oven at 350 degrees, you want those shrimp to be well cooked before you eat them!

I chopped the bacon, took the paddy out of the oven, topped it with the salsa and sprinkle bacon on top of that! It was sooooo good! The bacon adds so much flavor to the salsa and makes it less overpowering!


  1. I like your additions to the burger....bacon is good on anything!!!
