Shrimp Cocktail Burgers

Pairs well with:

Chenin Blanc

This wine is bursting with crisp, refreshing fruit flavors like apple, pear, and melon, making you want to swing your legs off a dock at sunset.


1-1/3 lb ground beef or ground sirloin
8 large shrimp, steamed, peeled, and chopped into a small dice
3 Tbsp prepared horseradish
3 Tbsp ketchup
2 tsp hot sauce
zest of 1/2 lemon
salt and pepper
5 squares of puff pastry, about 3 inches square
Tomato slices
Lettuce leaves
cocktail sauce



With clean hands, mix first five ingredients together until just combined. Form into burgers, four or five depending on how large you want them. Grill over medium heat approximately 5 minutes per side. Meanwhile, bake the pastry squares at 350 for 12 minutes. While still hot, split them in the middle like buscuits to be used as buns. Top prepared burgers with lettuce, tomato, bacon and cocktail sauce…delicious!
