I had some croissants left over that I wanted to use, some jumbo shrimp, so I tweaked another one of my shrimp recipes and this is what I came up with. Nothing fancy, but packed full of flavor. This was one delicious, satisfying sandwich. Quick too, that's always a plus!

Enjoy!

How to Make ~ Awesome Cajun Jumbo Shrimp Croissants ~

Step-by-Step

  1. Place the slices in a small bowl and mix well to combine.
  2. Clean shrimp and pat dry. Place in a dish and pour the seasoning over and mix well, making sure to coat each evenly. ( I use my fingers )
  3. In my cast iron skillet, over medium heat, I melted 1 tablespoon butter with the olive oil. Once butter is frothy, add the shrimp. Tossing frequently after the first minute until all are pink and cooked through. Once cooked stir in the last tablespoon butter and stir around. This is for some extra sauce to drizzle over the shrimp.
  4. Slice your croissants, lay lettuce on the bottom halve and place desired shrimp to cover. Spread top of croissant with mayonnaise. ( aoli would be great as well , was too lazy to make) mayo was just as good. Add any other desired condiments you prefer.I went simple as the shrimp are so tasty I didn't want to mask their flavor.
    Place the top of croissant back over the shrimp and chow down. These were awesome!
  5. As I said before I will triple the recipe the next time. Believe me, they won't go to waste. They are great eaten straight from the pan.
  6. I've since added my spicy mayo that I think would also go well with this yummy sand.
    Mix all ingredients and chill for an hour.
