Cara and Chantal's Shrimp Burgers

we were going to make salmon burgers but that proved to be too expensive so we opted for a bag of shrimp instead. They turned into a beautiful crustacean incarnation.

1 bag (1 pound or so) of shrimp (devined and all the dirty work done is best)
1/4 red onion
4 cloves of garlic
bunch of french cilantro
1/2 inch of fresh ginger (peeled and chopped)
1 teaspoon of grated lime peel
2 teaspoons fish sauce
1/3 cup of flour
1/2 cup of bread crumbs
3 eggs
salt 1 teaspoon
pepper (dash)
sugar (1 teaspoon)
(could add some heat with chilli pepper etc.)

rough chop the shrimp and all other ingredients
mix in eggs, flour and bread crumbs

heat olive oil or other oil in a frying pan. (not to hot)
drop in heaping tablespoon of shrimp mixture.
brown on both sides (about 4 minutes per side)

lay out on paper towel to soak up extra oil.

serve with chopped cilantro, lime wedges, red onion slices and mayo.
on whole wheat buns.
