The two possible mistakes in the surf and turf burger
Never put the beef through the meat grinder together with the shrimp! And don't put the shrimp on top of the grilled burger patty when assembling the burger either.

Then the second half with the shrimp.
Tomatoes, lettuce leaves, peppers, cucumbers or, in this case, fried onions on the meat side (see the recipe below for the preparation of the fried onions). Cheese can also be on it, but only on the meat side, since cheese goes well with very few fish or seafood dishes.
