The decision has been made! AND CHANGED! We'll do the Creole Shrimp Burgers with the recommended sie. I would ask one of you to please post these recipes. My iPad has been acting up lately and won't copy paste easily.

Also, if someone wants to recommend a dessert, feel free to add it. I may actually try the Tiramisu Crepes, but I didn't want to commit. I've never done crepes. So I was afraid I'd chicken out.

I didn't commit the review date in the title of the thread without consulting you guys. What do you think of March 16? If everyone agrees, I'll assume Jean can change the thread title and make it a sticky?
Keep your mind wide open.

The 16th sounds about right. Thanks for picking Daphne.

Creole Shrimp Burgers
The rémoulade does double duty — first as a topping for the burgers, then as
a delicious dip for the Cajun Oven Fries.

Makes 2 serving
Total time: 45 minutes + chilling
4 scallions, chopped
1 rib celery, trimmed and
Zest of 1 lemon
12 oz. large or medium shrimp,
peeled, deveined, patted dry,
and chopped
1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
2 Tbsp. mayonnaise
2 tsp. Old Bay seasoning
1/4 tsp. Tabasco sauce
1 Tbsp. olive oil
Red leaf lettuce
2 hamburger buns, halved,
brushed with melted butter

1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp. each minced shallot
and kosher dill pickle
2 tsp. capers, chopped
Black pepper and Tabasco
sauce to taste
For the burgers, pulse scallions,
celery, and zest in a food
processor until minced. Add
shrimp and pulse until coarsely
chopped; transfer to a bowl.
Stir in panko, 2 Tbsp. mayonnaise,
Old Bay, and 1/4 tsp. Tabasco. Form
mixture into two patties, 3/4-inch
thick; chill 20–30 minutes.
For the rémoulade, stir together
1/2 cup mayonnaise, Dijon, shallot,
pickle, and capers; season with
black pepper and Tabasco and chill.
Heat oil in a cast-iron skillet over

Cajun Oven Fries
So the fries are done at the same
time as the burgers, start baking the
fries while the burgers are chilling.
Then cook the burgers during the last
10 minutes of baking the fries.
Makes 2 servings
Total time: 40 minutes
1/2 tsp. each kosher salt, garlic
powder, dried thyme, and
1/8 tsp. each cayenne pepper and
black pepper
1 russet potato, cut into 1/4-inch
sticks (12 oz.)
1 Tbsp. olive oil
Preheat oven to 450°. Coat a
baking sheet with nonstick spray.
Combine salt, garlic powder,
thyme, paprika, cayenne, and black
pepper. Toss potato sticks with oil
and seasonings.
Arrange potato sticks in a single
layer on prepared baking sheet;
bake 15 minutes. Flip potato sticks
and continue baking until golden
and crisp, 10–15 minutes more.

Thanks for adding the recipes, Blane! I need to visit the Verizon Store soon. I don't know what's going on with this thing. Even though I successfully copy something, it pastes something else previously coped. Other problems, it won't let me copy at all. Very annoying!
Keep your mind wide open.

Yes, but I was thinking that 1/2 c. mayo in the RÉMOULADE isn't helping to keep the calorie count down.

  Re: Daphne's Review Dinner - Due March 16th Mare749 Yes, but I was think...
1/2 cup of a mayo based sauce for two burgers is overkill. I would probably just use a tablespoon (or a little more) for each burger.

I also have gotten to the point of buying individual kaiser rolls from the fresh bakery department because I figure they have to have less calories than some of those packages of big buns - some of them have like 280 calories.
