Aloha Teriyaki Shrimp Burgers Recipe


For the pineapple teriyaki sauce:

1/2 tbsp cornstarch
1/4 cup cold water
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/2 cup pineapple juice
3 tbsp brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon fresh grated ginger, very fine
1 small garlic clove, minced

For the shrimp burgers:

2 lbs shrimp, peeled and deveined (weight after peeled)
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup chopped scallions
1 tsp fresh grated ginger
1 tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup panko 
1 tsp sriracha sauce (or more if you like it spicy)

For topping:

8 slices fresh pineapple, cored
8 whole wheat 100 calorie buns (I used Martin's)
8 lettuce leaves


For the teriyaki sauce:  

  1. Combine the cornstarch in cold water and dissolve. Set aside.
  2. Mix soy sauce, pineapple juice, brown sugar, grated ginger and garlic in small saucepan over medium-low heat; bring to a boil and simmer until sauce reduces, about 15 to 18 minutes. 
  3. Add cornstarch water mixture and simmer until thick, about 2 minutes. 
  4. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.

For the shrimp:

  1. Dry shrimp well with a paper towel then place the shrimp in the food processor along with garlic then pulse a few times until almost pasty. 
  2. Combine the shrimp in a large bowl with remaining ingredients and mix well to combine. Using rubber gloves (easier with gloves), form shrimp into 8 patties. 
  3. Refrigerate at least 1 hour or as long as overnight.
  4. Heat the grill over medium-high heat and brush the grates with oil. Add the shrimp burgers to the heated grill and cook 6 minutes on each side. While the shrimp burgers are cooking, grill the pineapple slices for about 2 to 3 minutes on each side.

To serve, place a piece of lettuce on the bottom of each burger bun. Top with the cooked burger and 1-1/2 tbsp of teriyaki sauce, then top with grilled pineapple.
