Shrimp Sandwich

This is a simple and delicious Shrimp Sandwich. You can use lobster for this recipe and instead of white bread a nice crusty baguette would be good or I would say even better. You know what? I'm thinking of making the lobster sandwich for a picnic and pack a bottle of chilled white wine or maybe champagne?? I know, I know, the weather over here in Vancouver is still cold for a picnic, but it's good idea to plan ahead! :D

Recipe adapted from The Harry's Bar Cook Book By Arrigo Cipriani

Shrimp Sandwich


1 1/2 lbs (675 g) Tiny Gamberetti or Large Shrimps, cooked
3/4 Cup (185 ml) Home-made Mayonnaise
12 Thin Slices Home-style Unsweetened White Bread, largest available slices
1/2 Head Romaine Lettuce, coarsely shredded
Sea Salt
Worcestershire Sauce


Cool the cooked shrimps, then shell and devein them. If the shrimps are large, cut them in half lengthwise.

Assemble the sandwiches. Spread some mayonnaise generously over one side of each slice of bread. Mound half the lettuce on half the bread slices, leaving a 1-inch (2 1/2 cm) margin of bread. Mound the shrimp on top of the lettuce and season them with some salt and a few drops of Worcestershire sauce. Cover with the remaining lettuce, then another slice of bread. Press firmly on the edges to seal the sandwiches. Trim the crust if you wish.


  1. There's just something about having the crusts cut off that makes me nostalgic for home. Yummy recipe - thanks!

  2. I bet my sister would love this! I will have to email her the link :) Thanks for sharing! Looks yummy (as usual!)

  3. You inspired me to make this for myself for lunch. It's wonderful! I was not sure if I'd like the Worcestershire sauce but it adds a great note. I also added a bit of celery à la the lobster rolls, for a bit of texture. Thanks!

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
