  • Grilling Instructions

    In a food processor, blend 1/3 of the shrimp into a paste. Add remaining shrimp and pulse until finely chopped. Transfer to a medium bowl. Use a fork to stir in 1/4 cup Italian dressing, the juice from two of the lemon wedges, and all of the ingredients up to and including the cayenne.

    Divide into 4 burger patties. Use your fingertips to lightly flatten each one until it is about 1/2 inch thick or 4 inches wide. Refrigerate.

    In another medium bowl, whisk together the remaining Italian dressing, juice from the other two lemon wedges, and the mayo. Add the cole slaw and diced red onion. Toss until everything is well coated. Refrigerate.

    Preheat the grill as follows:

    Gas:
    Indirect heat, medium-high
    (425 - 450 degrees F)

    Charcoal:
    Indirect heat, coals to one side, light ash, grate should be on lowest setting

    Wood:
    Indirect heat, light ash, 3 - 4 inches deep one one side, grate should be 2 inches above the fire

    Clean and oil grate. Grill burgers 6 - 8 minutes, covered, until opaque throughout. Flip once at halfway point.

    Serve burgers with prepared cole slaw inside toasted French rolls or pita pockets.
