Shrimp And Scallop Burger Recipe

There are a lot of options when it comes to summertime burger recipes. You may not want the heaviness of a beef patty, but a turkey burger may deliver in the flavor department. That's where the shrimp and scallop burger comes in. With bright Asian flavors and a delicate texture that features the protein you crave in a much more sophisticated form, it's definitely a burger recipe to add to the list. Add a squirt of sriracha or dollop of fresh guacamole and serve on top of a salad or in a bun for a light lunch or dinner.

Oh, and even though it doesn't call for grilling in the recipe we just thought we'd mention again: don't grill these. They'll fall apart before you can say "mollusk." A quick pan-fry will do the trick.
