Vital Choice Shrimp Burgers feature our superbly tasty, sustainably harvested, Fair Trade Certified Wild Artisan Blue Shrimp.

We season our burgers with sesame oil, to imbue them with nutty flavor notes, plus pinches of sea salt, pepper, and garlic.

There are no fillers or binders — shrimp are naturally rich in gelatin, which keeps the burgers whole and firm before and after cooking.

By choosing our Wild Shrimp Burgers, you support worker empowerment, local economic development, social responsibility, and environmental stewardship. To learn more, read on.

About the shrimp in our burgers
Our Artisan Blue Shrimp are hand-harvested from small, single-person boats in Mexico’s Gulf of California.

Instead of big trawlers, the fishery features small boats called pangas that meander through coastal lagoons in the Gulf of California.

The fishermen — who belong to local co-ops — employ an artisanal, highly selective harvest technique called suripera, which relies on tides and wind to drift the boats and their hand-cast shrimp nets.

This technique has the lowest bycatch and fuel consumption per pound of seafood in the world — and this is the only shrimp fishery in the world certified as fair trade (see “Fair Trade certified”, below).

Because of the panga boats’ limited range and storage, they off-load shrimp within hours of harvest, to be rushed to a state-of-the-art processing and freezing facility.

The shrimp are cleaned, frozen, and shipped to us within a few hours of capture, providing you with what may be the finest, most sustainably produced shrimp in the world!

And, by selecting these spectacular shrimp, you’re supporting sustainable seafood — as well as conscientious fishing families and communities!

Fair Trade Certified
The fishery supplying our Mexican Blue Shrimp received Fair Trade USA™ certification in 2016 — the first shrimp fishery in the world awarded that high honor.

The Sinaloa-based fishery — based in the red regions on the map at left — was found to meet the rigorous requirements of Fair Trade USA’s “capture fisheries” standard.

To earn certification, the producers had to meet criteria designed to promote worker empowerment, local economic development, social responsibility and environmental stewardship.

Upon meeting those high standards, it became the world's first fair-trade-certified shrimp fishery.

By selecting Fair Trade shrimp, you help fishermen earn enough to invest in projects that support the local ecosystem, and the communities that provide our amazing shrimp.

"Surprisingly lousy!" Bob S. on 09/25/2018 15:54 Review: I am a long-time, mostly greatly satisfied customer. I LOVE the Salmon burgers and thought I'd try the Shrimp burgers. They arrived in great shape (solidy frozen - no indication of a thaw and refreeze). I cooked them exactly according to the suggestions but they were terrible: bland, rubbery, tough. I threw it and the rest of the box in the trash. I was very disappointed. I called customer service and they promptly refund my money (their customer service has been superb the few times I called for support - a shout out to Angela!). Sad exception to a very long track record of superb seafood. I'm sticking with Vital Choice - but get rid of or change the recipe for the Shrimp Burgers... Bob in North Carolina

"Love these" Deanna C on 09/10/2018 12:16 Review: I love these cakes, I did read some reviews about cooking. Well I did not read the instructions. I just put them in a cast iron frying pan with some butter. They got crispy and were much better than I would have expected. They are delicious . I got them by mistake and so glad I did now I will be ordering more.

"Surprised" Kathleen on 08/08/2018 09:09 Review: I'm so surprised at the reviews here. I LOVED these. They're not processed, so they have a texture like chopped Shrimp, not burger meat - and they taste like Shrimp not a hamburger. I mean they taste exactly like they're supposed to - I thought they made a great & easy meal. YUM.
