I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Shrimp BLT
...in your mind.

Shrimp BLT

Makes 2 large sandwiches - This is a great variation on your typical BLT. Messy but great. Go on...ignore the mess and just enjoy!


  • 1/2 lb. peeled uncooked shrimp cut into smallish pieces
  • Kosher salt and ground pepper to taste
  • 1 head lettuce, the real head kind - don’t substitute here
  • 1 medium sized ripe tomato, sliced
  • About 8 pieces ready bacon, cooked
  • 2 nice sandwich (hoagie style) rolls
  • Chili sauce, the ketchup kind (not the Asian kind)


  1. Preheat a skillet on the stove, toss in the shrimp pieces and season to taste with salt and pepper (these will cook quickly)
  2. Cook ready bacon per package instruction in the microwave
  3. Preheat the broiler
  4. Open the sandwich rolls, place on a baking sheet and toast lightly under the broiler (and I mean lightly!)
  5. Cut the lettuce in half then quarters and shred about a quarter into thin slices
  6. Spread the chili sauce to taste onto the toasted rolls
  7. Top with 3 - 4 pieces of bacon, a pile of lettuce shreds and a couple of tomato slices
  8. Finally top with 1/2 of the cooked shrimp in a pile on top of everything else
  9. Put the top of the roll on and cut the sandwich in half
  10. Forget how it falls apart - just make it and enjoy!
