Grilled Shrimp Sandwiches with Creamy Slaw

Makes 2 Large Sandwiches

This shrimp sandwich recipe is very quick, easy, healthy and delicious, my version of a Po' Boy. Serve the sandwiches on a busy weeknight or for casual entertaining when you want something special and a little different. The shrimp can be grilled indoors or out, sautéed, broiled or roasted. To keep this light and healthier, I use reduced fat yogurt, sour cream and canola mayonnaise in the cabbage slaw without compromising flavor or texture. Despite the number of ingredients, the sandwiches come together very quickly. The recipe can be made in any amount needed.

For the slaw, in a medium bowl mix together the first 8 ingredients until well-blended. Taste for seasoning, adjusting vinegar or dairy for more or less tang. Add the cabbage, onions and peppers. Toss to combine. Set aside. (Can be made up to one day ahead and refrigerated; bring to room temperature before serving.)

For the shrimp, marinate the shrimp in the lemon juice, salt, pepper and oil for up to 30 minutes. Meanwhile, heat a grill pan on high heat. Add the shrimp and grill for 3 minutes, then flip and cook just until pink. Remove some of the bread from the inside of the rolls and lightly toast the cut side on the grill or under the broiler. Place shrimp in one layer on the bottom halves of the rolls. Top with cheese if using and return to broiler to melt. Top with tomato slices, then slaw and optional hot peppers. Cover with the top roll and serve immediately.

Notes: This recipe makes an ample amount of slaw for two sandwiches. Extra can be served on the side or saved for lunch the next day.
