Shrimp and Pork Mini Burgers

1 egg
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons sesame oil
2 teaspoons ginger, finely grated
4 garlic cloves, finely minced
2 teaspoons cornstarch
250 grams (about ½ of a 454-g pkg) fresh or frozen uncooked shrimps
500 grams lean ground pork
2 green onions, thinly sliced + more for garnish
1 medium carrot, finely grated
sweet Thai chili sauce (optional)
sesame seeds (optional)

Put shrimps in a food processor and whirl for a few seconds until shrimps are mashed.
In a separate large bowl, whisk egg with soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger, garlic, and cornstarch. Add the shrimp and pork to the mixture, and gently stir together.
Stir in the green onions and carrot, and mix well.
Shape into 2-inch patties, about ¼-inch thick.
Heat the grill to 375 degrees F and oil the grates with paper towel.
Cook the patties covered, about 4 to 6 minutes per side, or until the patties are browned and firm to touch.
If pan-frying, heat a large pan over medium heat and add oil. You may have to work in batches for this – do not overcrowd the pan. Cook patties until browned, about 3 minutes. Flip and continue cooking for another 4 minutes. Repeat with remaining patties.
Serve with sweet Thai chili sauce that is garnished with green onions and sesame seeds.
