Trick:

  • Instead of long buns or ciabatta, you could also consider using pita bread or tortilla wraps to roll the ingredients up for serving. These alternatives will help to keep the shrimps in place and prevent them from sliding out of the buns easily, which is what keeps happening for mine!

Disclaimer:

  • This recipe was kindly adapted from Life’s Ambrosia’s Spicy Shrimp Sandwich with Chipotle Avocado Mayonnaise‘. I used frozen raw shrimp instead of fresh ones to save myself some time from having to peel all the fresh ones. The shrimps tasted really fresh and chewy nevertheless!

Serving:
2 persons (2 buns)
