Spicy Chipotle Grilled Shrimp Salad Sandwiches

Even though cooler weather is here, it doesn’t stop us from cooking out and enjoying our outdoor kitchen space. We grill at least once a week during the cooler months. We have a  large patio area around our pool and a big comfy table by the grill. My husband recently added a big T.V. out there, and we’re even thinking of adding a big comfy outdoor sectional this month. Needless to say, we spend alot of time on the patio.

While the the food is cooking on grill, we just enjoy being outside. In the heat of the summer, everyone wants to run in to the air conditioner. But in the cooler months everyone enjoys time in the fresh air outside. This past weekend I made these grilled shrimp salad sandwiches.

To start this recipe, I just removed the tails from my already peeled shrimp and then placed them on skewers. Then I seasoned them with a Cajun spice mix before placing them on the grill. They don’t take long at all to cook.

Next I take the shrimp and place them in a large bowl with Hidden Valley’s Spicy Chipotle Pepper Sandwich Spread. This spread is incredible. It’s my new favorite. They also have a Oven Roasted Garlic Parmesan, Smoked Bacon and Country Herb. My son especially loves the Country Herb, and my husband, the Smoked Bacon.

After I get the shrimp salad together, I spoon  it on a hoagie roll and top the sandwich with ripe tomato, creamy avocado and fresh cilantro.

    This looks so yummy! I might just have to bust out our grill (in a snowstorm, no less) just to make these.
