Cilantro Lime Shrimp Burgers | Whole30, Keto, Paleo
These cilantro lime shrimp burgers are light, fresh, and packed with healthy protein. They are great for low-carb or keto ways of eating.
I recently purchased a 2-pound bag of uncooked shrimp and threw it in the freezer. Normally when I buy shrimp, it’s cleaned and de-veined, so I really didn’t want to deal with it for a while.
I also had no idea what I wanted to make, and the fact I had to do all that work with the shrimp made me realize whatever I made had to be worth it.
👉 Low Carb & Keto Bread Crumbs
These cilantro lime shrimp burgers were totally worth it. They have a simple, fresh flavor and are bound with my favorite low-carb “bread crumbs.”
While regular breadcrumbs or panko breadcrumbs will work in this recipe, I used a low-carb or keto form of binder.
Simply take a bag of plain pork rinds, add it to a plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin until a breadcrumb-like powder is formed. Use in place of regular breadcrumbs.

💗 How to Make Shrimp Burgers
Cilantro lime shrimp burgers are easy to make because all ingredients can be pulsed together in a food processor, formed into patties, and then pan-fried.
1️⃣ Blend ingredients.
Add all ingredients, including whole raw shrimp, into a food processor. Pulse until all ingredients are fully incorporated.
2️⃣ Shape mixture into burgers.
With wet hands, form shrimp burgers until they are 1/2 inch thick patties.
3️⃣ Cook shrimp burgers.
Add oil to skillet and cook each burger over medium-high heat for about 3-4 minutes on each side (or until cooked through).
Serve with a lime wedge.
NOTE: This recipe will not work with pre-cooked. Raw shrimp must be used.

How many does this make?
Hi! I was able to get about 8 small ones or 6 medium ones. I prefered them bigger as they had more moisture in them.
Can I freeze the pattys? If I can , should I freeze them raw or cooked?
I’d freeze them raw. Cooked will dry out if frozen and thawed.
