A Crazy EASY spiced Mayo for Shrimp and Salmon (and Shrimp Burgers!)

I'm a big fan of Old Bay Seasoning... I even partnered with them last summer to bring you (my readers) a contest in which one of you won a large beach bag filled with Old Bay goodies like a beach towel, lots of Old Bay Seasoning, beverage opener and other items needed to host a great Old Bay Beach party or backyard BBQ.

I'm always on the lookout for more recipes to use some of my (3) cans of various flavors of Old Bay Seasoning. When I saw this one for shrimp burgers I immediately was drawn to it because of my love for seafood but also for the spiced mayo it offered as well. What SIMPLE and yummy mayo idea!

Last night we had salmon burgers for dinner and this mayo was the perfect condiment to serve with them! I also served plain mayo next to it as a choice but the flavor of this Old Bay Mayo added just the right touch to the salmon. I haven't made these shrimp burgers yet but jot this recipe down if only for the mayo to serve with your salmon!

Shrimp Burgers with Old Bay Mayo


1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/3 cup panko bread crumbs
2 scallions, white and green parts, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 cup canola oil
4 Brioche Buns, lightly toasted
Sliced Tomato
Lettuce
Sliced Avocado

For the mayo:
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Old Bay seasoning


Coarsely chop half of the shrimp. Put the remaining shrimp in a food processor and pulse until smooth. Combine both shrimp in a large bowl with egg, bread crumbs, scallions, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and garlic powder, and mix. Refrigerate 10 minutes, and then form into four patties.

Heat canola oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Cook burgers about 3 minutes per side.

For the mayo, combine mayonnaise and old bay seasoning.

Spread bun with mayo and top burger with tomato, avocado, and lettuce.
