Dancing Shrimp Panini

"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."

    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!

    This recipe is quick, easy, and very tasty. I used a baguette vs making a panini. The dash of hot sauce really enhanced the flavor of the filling and the lemon juice added a fresh sun-shiney taste. A terrific week night meal. Thanks for sharing. Nick's Mom

    Easy and fast to do once the shrimps are peeled lol My BF did it (so nice of him :) And I saw that I forgot to add the lemon juice (it's not written in the direction). I added hot sauce to mine and regiano parmigiana. I used a baguette and it was like a subway. Thanks :)


http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/527607/cookswithcattitude.jpg I am a middle aged foodie who has had the luxury of living all over the world except asia. Lived in or grew up in Nigeria, Kenya, Chicago, Russia,and haiti. born in New Zealand, brother born in Austria and many more. I have chronic medication resistant depression after 10 years on anti depressants that worked well but would stop working after a year or two, so now do my best at home living on disabilty. Not a bad thing, many have far worse health issues but i have been able to concentrate on food/cooking. My main passions are my cats. I live in the woods and somehow many starving strays or "dumps" have found the message babies who passed on left in the woods saying "suck lives at xxxx road. Most arrive sick and/or starving. Right now i have 2 that arrived with feline herpes and their attendant 2ndry bacterial infections but are doing beautifully. One old man who was going to be euthanized bc a lady who found him as a stray was moving and didnt want him...well he was a biter and rather grumpy who was in ICU for 3 days with a deadly gut infection which was fixed but he left with a diagnosis of diabetes. 3 months on insulin and finally diet controlled and he caught the herpes virus, respiratory symptom version and turned into a cuddler. Butterscotch must think "why didnt i figure out this cuddle stuff was great before i got sick!" Doing wonderfully even though he has bouts. he and the other kids are my babies. Sadly Butterscotch died of Lymphatic cancer in winter of 2008. A year before Big Boy arrived in my life, starving and weak. Full of affection he jumped into my arms and stayed, turns out he has FIV (cat hiv) so he needs to be watched closely. I love him dearly <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/smPACp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Stockingswapcopy.jpg"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/participantbannerzwt5.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/cookbookswap.jpg"> <img src="http://www.caymandesigns.com/foodothers/fallswap.jpg">
