Grilled Seafood Burgers With Old Bay Mayonnaise

Grilled Seafood Burgers With Old Bay Mayonnaise

Tender cod and sweet shrimp transform into juicy seafood burgers that are perfect for easy summer grilling. The shrimp do double duty here: They act as a natural binder, eliminating the need for bread crumbs and eggs and giving the burgers a pure seafood essence. They also lend a snappy, firm texture to the patties. A quick cook on the grill imparts great smoky notes that complement the fish, and an Old Bay mayo sauce highlights the seafood flavors even further.

  1. Step 1

    Heat a grill to medium and oil the grates.
  2. Step 2

    In a food processor, pulse shrimp a few times, just until finely chopped but not puréed. Transfer to a large bowl and add the cod, 1/4 cup of the scallions, the salt and pepper, and mix until well blended. (Hands work best.) Moisten your hands with water, then form the mixture into 4 (½-inch-thick) patties. Coat patties lightly with the oil.
  3. Step 3

    Grill the burgers until lightly charred and just cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes per side.
  4. Step 4

    Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, Old Bay and the remaining 2 tablespoons scallions; mix well.
  5. Step 5

    Smear some of the Old Bay mayonnaise on the buns. Top each bottom bun with a burger and squeeze lemon on top. Top with some of the lettuce and pickles, close the burgers and enjoy.
