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
1 lime, halved
1/4 cup tartare sauce
4 challah rolls or buns, split
- 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).
- 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.
- If desired, spread the buns with tartar sauce, then top with the lettuce, shrimp patties, and tomato. Serve with tots or french fries
