Shrimp Sandwiches (aka Easy Entertaining)
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
I love that there is no cooking required with this recipe, especially if you buy pre-cooked shrimp which is so tempting when the temperatures outside are climbing into the 100's! Use a colorful variety of tomatoes to prettify your platter. Lining everything up and allowing guests to build their own sandwiches is really an easy way to entertain and it keeps things interesting. If you're really pressed for time, you can even use a selection of good cold cuts, salami, etc and cut your prep time in half!
- 6 soft fresh bread rolls
- 1 small head of green lettuce
- 2 medium tomatoes thickly sliced
- 2 avocados pitted, peeled and sliced (optional)
- 8-10 fresh basil leaves for garnish optional
How to make the Shrimp Salad Portion:
Chop and pat dry your cooked shrimp.
In a medium bowl, combine shrimp, 1/4 cup mayo, 2 Tbsp sour cream, 2 tsp Dijon, 1 tsp lemon juice, 1 Tbsp chopped dill, 2 Tbsp chopped green onion. Mix well to combine then gently stir in chopped cucumbers. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Line your prepared vegetables up on a large serving platter. Garnish the tomatoe slices with basil if you're feeling fancy.
Brush your bread lightly with butter and toast on a hot skillet until golden brown on one side. Toasting makes all the difference with these sandwiches. These rolls are from Fred Meyer; buy the softest and freshest ones you can get your hands on. Add the toasted bread to your serving platter and you're ready to feed a crowd.
