This panini dances with flavor, it takes the idea of a po boy and marries it with grilled scampi. thanks for catching the missing lemon juice in the instructions.

MMMMMMmmmm !!!Great lunch here !!! Left out the hot sauce though. Made on our panimi grill. Very quick , and filling. Easy and delicious. Made for Gimme 5.

Delish! Quick and easy to make too. I couldn't get the shrimp to blacken, probably because I don't use a cast iron skillet. It was delicious without blackening. I served po boy style and it was easily enough for the three of us. I added the hot sauce and it really added a nice touch. Maybe a bit more next time... Thanks for posting this, it's very yummy!

This was a terrific weeknight meal! It went together very quickly and the flavors blended perfectly. I did choose to add the hot sauce and was glad I did--in fact, next time I will probably add even more. This sauce was so good I will double it next time. I made it as a po-boy but think it would be delicious as panini too. I wish I'd doubled the whole recipe as my DH and I scarfed it up. Thanks for another winner MarraMamba!
