"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.)"

"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!"
