Shrimp avocado and crab mayo sandwich

Not to brag, but I like to think of myself as the sandwich queen. Some of my favorite posts and recipes are ones for sandwiches such as braised balsamic beef waffle sandwich and my philly via Argentina sandwich, a play on philly cheese steaks. While browsing through my old recipes, I spotted my shrimp po’boy and shrimp and crab salad sandwich and was inspired to combine the two into one. Introducing shrimp avocado sandwich with crab mayo…yes, crab mayo!

**Helpful tips and common mistakes

Although this sandwich is incredibly easy to prepare, all the ingredients work so well together that you end up with a fabulous product. 

The crab mayo is just that, crab with mayo. Season with lemon juice to give the brightness that the spread needs. You can use canned lump crab meat or use fresh crab meat that you’ve prepared yourself.

Hoagie rolls are preferable for this sandwich since you have a sturdy base that can hold all of the components. You can use whole wheat or hoagies with sesame seeds; either will taste great in this sandwich.

Half an avocado may seem like a lot for a sandwich, but trust me, it’s the right amount! Even if the sandwich is seasoned, I always sprinkle salt and pepper on avocado (something that was instilled in me when preparing salads at a restaurant).

The shrimp should be freshly fried to give the crispiest shrimp for the sandwich. You can also choose to dip the shrimp in buttermilk rather than eggs to give more flavor.

The combinations are so simple for this shrimp avocado and crab mayo sandwich but it works perfectly. The crunch from the bread with the creamy crab mayo and avocado paired with the sweet fried shrimp and crunch from the romaine lettuce is heaven. Easy to prepare and delicious, what else can you ask for?
