This Asian-inspired burger is seasoned with fresh ginger, jalapeno pepper, cilantro, and peanut sauce. Serve in a pita with peanut-flavored slaw mix.
  Large shrimp 1 1⁄2 Pound (peeled)
  Garlic clove 2 Large, minced
  Minced fresh ginger 2 Tablespoon
  Jalapeno pepper 1 , minced (seeded)
  Minced cilantro 6 Tablespoon
  Green onions 3 , thinly sliced
  Thai peanut sauce 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Dry bread crumbs 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Fresh lime juice 2 Tablespoon
  Vegetable oil 2 Tablespoon
  Coleslaw mix 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Pita breads 4 Small (4 inch)

1. In a food processor, blend 1/3 of the shrimp into a paste. Add remaining shrimp; pulse until finely chopped. Transfer to a bowl. Add garlic, ginger, jalapeno, 1/4 cup cilantro, 2 green onions, 1/4 cup peanut sauce, bread crumbs and salt; combine with a fork. Divide into 4 portions. Pat with fingertips to flatten to about 4 inches wide. Refrigerate.

2. Whisk remaining peanut sauce with lime juice and oil. Mix slaw with remaining onion and cilantro; toss with dressing. Refrigerate.

3. For charcoal grill: Build a hot fire on one side of grill. Replace rack. When coals are covered with white ash, add burgers. Cover and cook, turning only once, until opaque throughout, about 3 1/2 to 4 minutes per side.

4. Grill pitas until spotty brown and warm, a minute or so per side. Split crosswise. Place a burger on each of 4 pita halves. Top with slaw, then remaining pita halves.
