Pork and Shrimp Hamburgers - How would you do it?

rudeboy | Mar 21, 2014 11:05 AM

This idea just popped in my head just now: pork and shrimp hamburgers. Let me know what you think, because when this happens, it usually means I'm off to the store. I see from yahooing that it has been done many times before - like most of my good ideas!

Ground pork
Minced shrimp - small enough to mix with pork, but large enough to discern the texture and flavor when you bite into it.

Ideas? I'm thinking thrown in a little fish sauce, chopped scallions, and bits of very finely diced shallots and hot poblano (which I have on hand). Keep it simple and on the back of the tongue. Should I leave it at that, or try and push it? For some reason, I don't want to add ginger, even though I like ginger. Something tells me not to.

I saw a "cajun" version with the holy trinity. I'm cajun, and I get bored with the holy trinity. I often put carrots in my gumbo and not tell anyone.
