5-ingredient spicy shrimp salad sandwich

Based on 3 ratings

“What was supposed to be a recipe for 5-ingredient shrimp tacos turned into this spicy, creamy, shrimpy combo. I just felt that the filling (developed by our contributor, and my friend, Julian Mancuso) fit better between buttery toasted bread (of which I would also highly recommend using a toasted sandwich roll for easier eating), so I nixed the corn tortillas. Supplement the sandwich with slices of tomato and crisp leaves of lettuce, or serve the salad without bread, instead topped with toasted pumpkin seeds, cilantro, and lime juice. Another option? Add a tablespoon of relish to the spicy mayonnaise.”
