    Put remaining half in a food processor and grind to a coarse puree.

    Add egg, cilantro and garlic to processor.

    Process until smooth.

    Sprinkle mixture with breadcrumbs and process again.

    Transfer contents of food processor to a large bowl.

    Add coarsely chopped shrimp, poblano chile and onion.

    Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.

    Mix well.

    Chill for 15 minutes.

    Form patties or "burgers" and set aside.

    Heat oil in a heavy skillet.

    When very hot, fry the shrimp burgers until golden, about 3 minutes per side, depending on thickness.

    Drain on paper towels.
