Low FODMAP and Gluten Free Recipe - Shrimp katsu burgers


2 gluten free burger buns

sunflower oil or vegetable oil, for frying

For the burgers

200g raw peeled shrimp

1 tsp chopped chives

½ egg white

1 tbsp cornflour

100g gluten free breadcrumbs

1 tbsp sesame seeds

For the slaw

¼ chinese cabbage, finely shredded*

juice ½ lemon

1 tbsp mayonnaise

For the chili mayo

3 tbsp mayonnaise

1 tbsp chili paste

*Only Chinese cabbage is suitable for the low FODMAP diet, normal cabbage should not be used.


To make the burgers, rinse the shrimp in cold water, then pat dry on kitchen paper. Tip half the shrimp and the chives into a food processor with a generous pinch of salt, and pulse to a rough paste.

Add the egg white and cornflour, pulse a few more times then add the rest of the shrimp and pulse to roughly chop them into the mixture.

Tip the gluten free breadcrumbs and sesame seeds into a shallow dish or onto a plate. Scoop out half the shrimp mixture with your hands and shape into a burger as well as you can (the mixture will be sticky).

Press the burger into the crumbs, then flip over and pack crumbs around the sides so it’s completely coated.

Repeat with the remaining mixture and crumbs, then place the burgers on a plate, cover with cling film and chill until ready to cook.

Next, mix together the chili mayo ingredients in a bowl. For the slaw, put all the ingredients in a bowl, season, then toss to combine. You can make the burgers, slaw and chili mayo a day ahead and chill them.

To cook the burgers, heat about 2cm oil in a frying pan until just starting to shimmer and a breadcrumb dropped in sizzles and browns.

Very carefully fry the burgers for 3-4 mins each side until golden, crispy and springy to the touch – you may need to turn them a few times to cook them all the way through.

Carefully lift out of the oil onto kitchen paper to drain. Cut the buns in half and toast the cut sides under the grill.

Assemble the burgers by spooning the slaw over the bottom of each bun, adding a burger and topping with the mayo. Serve straight away with extra chili mayo, if you like.
