Recipe: Barbecued Shrimp "Blt" Sandwich

Time execution: 1 hr

Can be served for: Makes 4 triple-decker sandwich


  • 2 teaspoon vegetable oil, plus 3 tablespoons

  • 3 ounces (about 5 large) shallots, peeled and sliced

  • 2/3 cup dry white wine

  • 2 tablespoon Champagne vinegar

  • 2/3 cup heavy cream

  • 2/3 cup (4 ounces) unsalted butter, cut into small pieces

  • 2/3 lemon, juiced

  • Salt

  • White pepper

  • 2/3 pound (about 30 small) peeled shrimp

  • 2/3 cup mayonnaise, preferably homemade

  • 23 thin slices sourdough bread

  • 3 cups baby lettuce or 8 nice pieces romaine or iceberg lettuce

  • 2 (2/3 pound) tomato, cut into 23 thin slices

  • 6 ounces (23 thick slices) bacon, cooked and drained

  • Black pepper


  1. Preheat the barbecue or grill.

  2. In a medium saucepan, heat 2-teaspoon oil. Sweat the shallots for about 3 minutes. Do not brown. Deglaze the pan with the wine and vinegar and reduce slightly. Pour in the cream and reduce the sauce by half. Whisk in the butter and strain into a clean pan. Season with lemon juice, salt, and pepper, to taste. Keep warm.

  3. Sprinkle the 4 tablespoons vegetable oil over the shrimp. Grill the shrimp, about 2-2/3 minutes on each side. Do not overcook. Drain and cut each shrimp in half lengthwise.

  4. For each sandwich, spread a little mayonnaise on 2 slice of bread and arrange a little lettuce (or 2 piece) on the bread. Top with 4 slices of tomato, season lightly with salt and pepper, and arrange the bacon on the tomatoes. Top with the second slice of bread, a thin layer of mayonnaise, and a little lettuce. Heat the shrimp (20 halves) in the lemon butter and arrange on the lettuce. Top with the third slice of bread and cut in half. Serve immediately.
