Epic Fail on the Buns

Instead of having a light and airy gluten free burger bun for my shrimp patties,  I ended up with a product that looked like a wheat flat bread. I followed the recipe, but it still didn’t work. I consider that an epic fail as you can see by the pre-bake photo.

They were an okay option for the shrimp patties, but not what I expected. I made the panisses again and they were just as delicious as the first time. At least something worked. Oh yes, the shrimp patties were pretty tasty, too.

Here’s the recipe:

Shrimp Patties

1 cup gluten free Panko bread crumbs

1 ¼ lb shrimp

2 tbsp mayo

¼ tsp. pepper

 tsp salt

 tsp Old Bay

1 tbsp. parsley, chopped

Place bread crumbs into a food processor and pulse them a few times to make them smaller pieces. Next, add 1 cup shrimp, mayo, pepper, salt, and Old Bay into a food processor. Pulse about six times until minced. Add the remaining shrimp and pulse about three times. You should see come pieces, but not large.

Add parsley into the mix and stir. Shape into 4 patties. Thinly coat in the bread crumbs. Place 3 tablespoons oil in a non-stick pan and heat it over medium high until it shimmers. Place the patties in the pan and fry until golden brown. 3-5 minutes on each side. Internal temp should be 140-145.
