I love a good leftover sandwich, so after whipping up shrimp rémoulade the other night, I made sure to save some shrimp and sauce for a second dinner, sandwiched inside a crispy, sweet baguette. The flavor of the rich, robust rémoulade against the flaky French bread and cool, fresh shrimp was so yummy I wish I'd made sandwiches the first time around, rather than just serving the baguette on the side.
The recipe is equally easy as a from-scratch sandwich or a leftover reinvention. As with the rémoulade recipe, you can make the sauce a day in advance and let the taste intensify over time. Though I used butter lettuce, you could also dress it with shredded iceberg or romaine. The most important thing is finding a perfectly fresh baguette (or freshening up the bread you bought the day before). To get the recipe, read more.
