  1. The burgers: Roughly cut up one half of the shrimp. Grind up the rest of it in a grinder until it doesn’t have any lumps anymore. In a pot, add all the shrimp, breadcrumbs, salt, pepper, lemon juice, garlic powder, egg, and scallions, and stir them. Pop the mixture in the fridge for 10 minutes before making 4 patties and put them back in the refrigerator for another 10 minutes.
  2. In a big frying pan, heat oil and cook the patties for 3 minutes on either side, on medium-high heat.
  3. The Old Bay mayo: In a container, incorporate the mayonnaise and a preferred amount of Old Bay.
  4. To serve, lay out the mayo on the buns, put the patties, and add tomatoes, lettuce, and avocados.
