These make an awesome and very flavorful sandwich that we will enjoy many more times! For me, the key is using French bread because it has a chewy, kind of tough crust that is perfect for this sandwich!

One of my favorite sandwiches! A little spicy but not too much for us. If you like shrimp try this one! It's yummy!

WOW makes one heck of a sandwich. Used some crusty thick slices of French bread to hold this luscious sandwich. Mmmmm gooddd!

This was special! The sauce is a nice combination that you may make as spicy or lite as you like. I used 4 Argentine prawns - that was all that would fit on the bun. I'll have this again for sure.
