  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha sauce
  • 2 sweet onions peeled, sliced and slices cut in half
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 pinch pinch of sugar
  • salt and pepper
  • 12 large Shrimp peeled, deveined, butterflied and tails removed
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup arugula washed and dried
  • 4 slider buns


  • Mix mayonnaise and Sriracha sauce well. Set aside.
  • Melt butter in large skillet over medium heat. When the butter starts to bubble, add onions and toss to coat.
  • Sprinkle with sugar, and give the onions a good stir. Let them brown watching them closely so they don't burn.
  • Turn down heat to low, slowly cook onions, stirring every 2 - 3 minutes for 30 minutes or until a golden. Turn heat up to medium high if you need to brown the onions to a golden color, stirring constantly. Season with salt and pepper.
  • In the meantime, coat prepared shrimp with flour. Shake off excess. Lightly salt and pepper. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Once the skillet is hot, add olive oil. When the olive oil starts to shimmer, turn heat to medium and add shrimp.
  • Cook shrimp about 2-3 minutes per side, turning only once. Remove and drain on a paper towel.
  • To build the slider, slater both sides of the bun with the Sriracha mayonnaise, place 3 shrimp on each bun, top with a pinch of caramelized onions and a few leaves of arugula. Serve immediately.
