Cajun Shrimp Burgers

While visiting my sisters for my niece Cayce’s college graduation from Baylor University we had a great time together. Cayce asked me if we could make something with fish together. After naming a few ideas we came up with Cajun Shrimp Burgers. Everyone here in Texas likes it hot…

It was great having some one-on-one time with Cayce as we made these yummy burgers. We made 5 with 1 pound of shrimp and while we were enjoying them it was mentioned that these would also make a great appetizer.

The cajun mayonnaise made these burgers even more amazing. We all loved this lunch together! Give this recipe a try…
