What to serve with these Keto shrimp burgers?

These Keto chunky shrimp burger patties are so versatile and can be served in a number of ways. Just like any regular burger, these pair perfectly with zucchini fries or eggplant fries.

Can you make this recipe ahead of time?

Yes, you can make this recipe ahead of time. Prepare the burger patties according to the recipe instructions and allow them to cool down completely. To store, simply place the cooked patties in an airtight container. Then, transfer the container to the fridge and store for up to 2 days. Alternatively, to freeze, wrap each burger patty with plastic wrap and place them in a zip lock bag. Freeze for up to 3 months. To reheat, allow the frozen burger patties to thaw overnight in the refrigerator then reheat them on a skillet over medium heat until well heated through.

A few delicious flavor combinations that pair well with shrimp include Cajun spic, Asian flavors that include freshly grated ginger and some Keto-friendly soy sauce, and Traditional Old Bay spice mix. If you fancy a sauce to pair with your burger, a few options include Keto tartar sauce, Keto bang bang sauce or Low-carb garlic-chili sauce.
