From Canadian Living Appetizer Collection

Printable Recipe

Prep time: 15 minutes
*Can be prepared up to a day ahead and kept in the fridgeCook time: 4-5 minutes

Makes 6 or 12 sliders depending on the size of the scoop

1/2 cup panko bread crumbs  plus some extra for counter/plate/baking sheet so that the sliders wont stick.
salt & pepper
1 egg
2 cloves garlic, peeled
2 green onions
1 lb/450 g raw large shrimp, peeled, deveined
1 tbsp canola oil
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
mini hamburger (slider) buns 
Wasabi sauce:
1/2 cup mayo (I like Hellmann's with Olive Oil)
1-2 tsp wasabi paste
2 tbsp lime juice
1/2 tsp grated lime zest

1.  Whisk together all the ingredients for the wasabi sauce in a small bowl and set aside.Can be made up to 2 days ahead.

2. In a food processor, pulse bread crumbs, egg, garlic, green onions, salt & pepper until the onions are finely chopped.  Add the shrimp and pulse until finely chopped. 

3.  My prep: Line a large rimmed baking sheet with waxed paper. (NOTE: The recipe called for 1/4 cup scoops, but I found them large and only made six sliders.  Next time I'll use my small ice cream scoop to make 12 smaller ones).  Toss some breadcrumbs onto the tray so sliders wont stick.  Scoop & flatten sliders onto the sheet.  Sprinkle a little more breadcrumbs on top of sliders. Can be stored covered in the fridge overnight.  I even refrigerated them for 30 minutes before cooking.

4. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat and cook the sliders for 2-3 minutes per side.  Until golden and firm.

Serve with wasabi sauce (which is also great as a dip for raw vegetables, etc.)
