Total Time: 45 Minutes, Servings: 4 Servings

Ingredients :
    For the guacamole
  • 1 medium-sized avocado should provide about 3/4 cup mashed
  • 2 tablespoons red onion, finely diced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chipotles in adobo sauce, finely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • For the burger
  • 1 pound raw shrimp, peeled and deveined (Click here for How to Peel and Devein Shrimp)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup packed cilantro leaves, washed and dried
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • olive oil for the pan
  • about 8 thin slices vine-ripened tomato 1 small handful baby lettuces 4 of your favorite burger buns, lightly toasted



Instructions :
    For the guacamole
  • In a small mixing bowl, mash the avocado with a fork. Add the onion, chipotles, lime juice, and salt -- stir to blend. Cover with plastic wrap and press it gently directly on top of the guacamole. Set aside.
  • For the burgers
  • Add all but about ¾ cup of the shrimp to a food processor fitted with the blade attachment. Turn it on to pulse it just a bit. Then add the egg and cilantro and blend again until it's smooth, about 10 seconds. Add this to a mixing bowl and set aside.
  • Roughly chop the remaining ¾ cup of shrimp into small pieces. Add them to the smooth portion in the mixing bowl, along with the salt, cumin and pepper. Mix just to blend and set aside.
  • Coat the bottom of a large sauté pan with olive oil and place it over medium-high heat. Once it's very hot, use a ½ cup measure to scoop and shape the shrimp mixture into 4 burgers. They will be sticky, but will easily hold together when you place them in the pan. Sauté them just until they're cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. They should be golden brown.
  • Now add about 1 tablespoon or so of the guacamole to each half of the toasted buns. Add a burger to each, followed by a couple of tomato slices and a bit of the lettuce. Close the burger and enjoy! (These are best when the burgers are still warm.)
