This is a delicious and filling sandwich with many layers of flavor. The sauce had just the right amount of spiciness for us and the veggies give it a nice crunch. I cooked fresh shrimp rather than using frozen and picked up a nice 5-grain roll from the bakery. I can see serving this with a nice Asian noodle salad. Enjoyed everything about this sandwich and wouldn t change a thing. I consider this a gourmet sandwich and would serve to company. Read More

I enjoyed this different type of sandwich. I used shrimp but mine were raw so I sauteed them in a little butter first and then assembled it all on a seeded roll. The sauce had a nice tang and spicyness to it. Although I liked it I found it a little messy to eat with contents falling out of the roll. Still good though. Thanks J9. Read More
