  • 40g leek
  • 2 eggs

  1. Sautéing Garlic and Shrimp: Let’s start by infusing our flavors. In a pan, sauté finely chopped garlic over medium heat with shrimp and three tablespoons of our exceptional La Abuela Carmen chipotle sauce. Set aside this mixture for later use.
  2. Tuna and Shrimp Blend: Finely chop the tuna and shrimp, then mix them in a bowl. This flavor combination promises an explosion of freshness and seafood in every bite.
  3. Leek and Egg Sauce: Blend leek with eggs and add it to the mixture along with an extra teaspoon of our chipotle sauce, breadcrumbs, a touch of grated ginger, salt, and pepper to taste. This unique blend elevates the flavor profile to new heights.
  4. Rest and Shape: Let the mixture rest for an hour to allow the flavors to harmonize. Then, shape our mini burgers, creating small masterpieces ready for the pan.
  5. Cook and Serve: Cook these delights on the griddle for about 3 minutes on each side, creating a crispy exterior and a juicy interior. Serve these mini burgers on buns with your favorite toppings and savor a unique experience.
