For the shrimp:

  • 16 oz jumbo shrimp (peeled and deveined (weight after peeling 12.5 oz))
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup egg substitute (egg beaters)
  • 6 tbsp whole wheat Italian seasoned breadcrumbs

For the sandwich:


  • Follow cooking directions for the baked shrimp recipe.
  • Preheat oven to 425° or set your broiler to low.
  • When shrimp is cooked, divide shrimp equally between 4 pieces of bread. (see tip)
  • Top each sandwich with 2 tbsp of sauce and shredded mozzarella cheese.
  • Place sandwiches on a cookie sheet and heat in the oven or broiler until the cheese melts; 2 - 3 minutes, careful not to burn if using the broiler.
  • Enjoy!!
