Seafood Sliders with Butter Lettuce & Tomato Slice

Sliders are an excellent way to feed a crowd—and who doesn’t like mini-burgers, anyway? Mine are seafood burgers made from a combination of shrimp, scallops, and squid, all mixed in the food processor for a seriously delectable treat. Serve them with a slice of cherry tomato and lettuce, and some spicy condiments on a tiny challah bun, and watch even your most mannered, sophisticated guests lick their fingers with delight!

Seafood Sliders with Butter Lettuce & Tomato Slice

Serves 16

for the patties

  • ½ pound shrimp, peeled, deveined
  • ½ pound scallops
  • 10 calamari, thoroughly washed
  • ½ cup corn, boiled
  • 1 egg yolk
  • ¾-½ cup bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons parsley, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Vegetable oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper 

To garnish

  • 16 challah buns, cut in half lengthwise
  • Butter lettuce
  • 3-4 medium red tomatoes
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise 
DIRECTIONS
  1. To make patties: Cut shrimp in three pieces, cut scallops in half, and slice squid into rings. In a food processor, whiz seafood, parsley, garlic, salt, and pepper until combined but not mushy. Transfer to a bowl, add corn, egg yolk, bread crumbs, and red pepper flakes; mix with your hands to combine.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Form 2-inch patties from the seafood mixture. Heat some oil in a non-stick pan and sear the patties in oil over medium heat for 1-2 minutes on both sides, until golden. Transfer to a baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes, right before the sliders are ready to be assembled and served.
  3. Cut challah buns in half and toast them lightly in the non-stick pan for 1-2 minutes. Set aside.
  4. Cut the lettuce into small pieces to fit the buns. Set aside.
  5. Using a thin sharp knife, slice the tomatoes into 1/8-inch pieces. Set aside.
  6. To assemble, line the bottom halves of the buns on the board or serving platter, top with lettuce leaf and a slice of tomato, season slightly with salt and pepper. Place the seafood patty on top. Smear a tiny little bit of mayonnaise on the top bun, and place it on top of the slider. Secure the slider with a toothpick.

Bon appetite! Svitlana
