Prawn Salad Sandwich a la Marketman


We had prepped too much brined and peeled shrimp for this pomelo and shrimp salad, so we put about 1.5 cups of shrimp into the fridge for lunch the next day. Into a bowl I added the shrimp, larger pieces cut into two, and added some grilled bell pepper strips. If you wanted to “bulk” this up, you could add some cubed cucumber or chopped celery, but I wanted to make this shrimp rich…


Next mix up a simple dressing of good mayonnaise, some extra virgin olive oil, lemon, mustard and chopped dill and/or other herbs and mix this with the prawns and peppers.


We had to make do with whatever bread we had in the house, so one of us had a whole wheat shrimp salad sandwich…


…and the other a mini-baguette with prawn salad. Took less than 10 minutes total to prepare this lunch. Perfect summer food. The only heat will come from your toaster. :)

  1. Either or, it looks heavenly to enjoy on a warm day. I must replicate! I must replicate! Though I prefer regular Coke versus diet (bleh).

    @ Connie C: I betcha it would be good ladled on to romaine hearts or iceberg cups. But then again, I’m a salad junkie so anything meat/seafood mixed with mayo, herbs and seasonings would be fine by me.

  2. Made me think of the gamberetti sandwich from Cibo that has alfalfa sprouts. But this looks better with those bigger pieces of shrimp! :D

  3. You are absolutely right MM, but somehow I do not like the sticky mayo or dressing on my bread. Just my palate, I guess. The green sorta serves as a buffer and provides the crunch as I bite into the sandwich. It shouldn’t matter, really, as the sandwich will be gone in no time, before the dressing even has a chance to seep into the bread.

    Boy,MM! You are something else….having this conversation while on vacation. Thanks.

  4. hmmm… i’ve never tried prawn this way. the nearest thing i’ve had is a seafood sandwich from subway… and it’s like having a marinara soup on a monday in a dodgy restaurant. this is overly luxurious. and i’m seeing myself indulging. :)

  5. It looks yummy! This is an ideal sandwich for me, simple and easy to make. This is a must try for me pero I think i’ll some little bit of paprika or Cheyenne pepper to give it a little spicy flavor. Thanks for sharing this one.
