  • Author: Adrian Forte



1 1/2 tbsp. olive oil, plus more for the baking sheet

1 lb. frozen potato tots or puffs

1 tbsp added Jerk seasoning

1 lb. large peeled and deveined shrimp, chopped

45g egg white

1 tablespoon jerk marinade 

2 scallions, finely chopped

2 tbsp. panko bread crumbs

black pepper

1 lime, halved

1/4 cup tartare sauce

4 challah rolls or buns, split


  1. In a food processor, pulse together the shrimp, egg white, scallions, panko, jerk marinade and 1⁄4 teaspoon black pepper just to combine (there should be some chunks of shrimp).
  2. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Shape the shrimp mixture into four 3⁄4-inch-thick patties and cook until golden brown and opaque throughout, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Remove the skillet from the heat and squeeze the lime juice all over the burgers.
  3. If desired, spread the buns with tartar sauce, then top with the lettuce, shrimp patties, and tomato. Serve with tots or french fries


In Swahili, Jikoni means kitchen. At our core, that’s what we are. A space to cook, to share, to create.
