Surf and Turf Burgers



·         2 pounds medium shrimp, peeled and deveined

·         2 cups panko

·         3 large eggs, beaten

·         2 tablespoons hot sauce

·         1 teaspoon chopped garlic

·         2 teaspoons seafood seasoning (recommended: Old Bay)

·         1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper

·         2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

·         1 teaspoon chopped fresh chives

·         1 jalapeno, chopped, seeds optional

·         1/4 cup chopped green onions

·         Olive oil, to moisten

·         Canola oil, for frying

·         8 hamburger buns, toasted

·         8 slices cooked good quality bacon, cut in half

·         Bibb lettuce leaves, for garnish

Lemon Caper Butter:

·         1 stick unsalted butter

·         1 lemon, juiced and zested

·         1 teaspoon capers


For the burgers: Divide the shrimp in half. Coarsely chop one half and set aside. Place the remaining shrimp into the bowl of a food processor and pulse 5 times.

In a large bowl, mix together the panko, eggs, hot sauce, garlic, seafood seasoning, and black pepper. Mix in the pureed shrimp, parsley, chives, jalapenos, and green onions. Add the coarsely chopped shrimp and stir to combine. To moisten the mix a bit more, add some olive oil. Form the mixture into 8 patties and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Chill for 20 minutes in the freezer or 2 hours in the fridge.

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, add the canola oil to generously cover the bottom of the pan. Once the oil is hot, fry 4 burgers at a time, 4 to 6 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and cover with foil. Repeat with the remaining 4 burgers.

For the butter: In a small saucepan over low heat, combine the butter, lemon juice and zest, and capers. Cook until melted, about 2 minutes.

To build the burgers, brush the buns with butter and lay the patties on the bottom of the hamburger bun. Top with bacon pieces and lettuce. Serve immediately.

This is getting a bit more sceibutjve, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like Mixview' that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you're listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of neighbors will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune Social is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
