These seafood sammies are a tasty way to get heated up. Simply adjust the seasoning and hot sauce to put some pop in a yummy pita. I even use more hot sauce for dipping. —Kent Whitaker, Rossville, Georgia

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 1, 2014

"These sandwiches are wonderful!!! My husband & daughter love them too. I like food with a little kick to it and this was perfect. It wasn't too hot. It was just right. This is a quick supper to put together on those busy nights. We will be having these again very soon!"

MY REVIEW

"These were EXCELLENT and so quick to make! Great for anyone to make after coming home from a long day of work as it only took like 5 min prep time for the basic ingredients and then the cooking time for the shrimp. Very delicious!"

"My Texan husband said these were a "great Midwestern rendition" of his favorite Southern sandwich. (We like them a little spicier than the recipe calls for.)"

MY REVIEW

"These sandwiches were delicious. I used whole wheat pitas and only used 1/2 Tbsp of hot pepper sauce because we like things on the milder side. This is definitely a new family favorite!"
