Succulent Shrimp Sandwiches

Shrimp, or prawns as they are also known, are great for making succulent shrimp sandwiches. Simply peel and cook them, then toss with mayonnaise, adding in some salt and black pepper for flavor, and spread this over white bread (or whole wheat if you prefer) to make the most delicious little succulent shrimp sandwiches.

These succulent shrimp sandwiches are nice for lunch or as a snack, or you could enjoy them mid-afternoon with tea or coffee. If you have large shrimp, cut them in half. Smaller ones can be left as they are.

You can use thawed, fresh or canned shrimp in this succulent shrimp sandwiches recipe but ensure they are well drained before you start. If you have raw shrimp, bring a pot of water to a boil then drop the shrimp in and cook for a couple of minutes or until they are pink.

How to Serve Succulent Shrimp Sandwiches

This is such an easy recipe and ideal for teatime or snacktime. The kids will love the sandwiches as much as the grownups because there is nothing not to love about them. Serve the succulent shrimp sandwiches with salad and some chips perhaps.

The photo was taken at The Imperial Hotel in Exmouth, Devon, where I was last month, and they were really delicious. You can see how generous they were with the filling. Bet yours can look just as nice! Don’t be mean with the filling though, that is the worst crime against sandwiches of all kinds!

Succulent Shrimp Sandwiches
Shrimp is paired with mayonnaise, salt and pepper to make a delightful filling for sandwiches. Try it on white or whole wheat bread, or what about as a baked potato topping? This is just so yummy.
