First: you can prepare and refrigerate (or freeze) the shrimp burgers recipe mixture, and use it when you get back from work, tired and wandering what to have for dinner.


Second: IF you have mayo leftovers, you’ll be glad, tomorrow, when you’ll spread it in your lunch break panino, or mix it to your salad.

Third: double the shrimp burgers recipe, wrap the burgers in plastic paper individually and have a 101 lazy weekend meal ready.

Fourth: just make them… you’ll have plenty reasons to add points to this list 🙂

Here’s my avocado mayo recipe, the perfect condiment for the shrimp burgers recipe.

I’m not a big fan of regular mayo, so it’s easy for me to say avocado mayo is way better. And even if you’re a big mayo fan, consider that avocado mayo is quite a healthy substitution, really worth it.

Just a little cutting and blending and you’ll get the best avocado mayo of your life. You can use it on your sandwiches, bowls, baked potatoes, tacos and tortillas.
