Shrimp and Slaw Sandwiches
For the Slaw:
1 package pre-shredded coleslaw without dressing
About 10 radishes, thinly sliced
2 oz. extra virgin olive oil
1.5 oz. red wine vinegar
1-2 tsp your favorite seasoning blend
The one I used is called “Potlatch” and includes salt, paprika, chili powder, red pepper, and assorted dried herbs. But you can use whatever type of seasonings you prefer.
Whisk together oil, vinegar, and spices to make the dressing, then toss with the vegetables. Keep refrigerated until ready to use.
For the Shrimp:
1 lb. peeled and deveined shrimp
1 tbs. oil
1-2 tsp. seasoning blend
Heat the oil in a skillet, then add shrimp and spices. Sauté until pink all the way through, about 5 mins.
Lay the shrimp in a flat layer on a hamburger bun, then add as much slaw as you desire.
