    The shrimp taste great but as far as sandwich recipes go, this was a failure. Way too many ingredients are used here and they can't stay inside the flimsy flatbread. The whole thing was a mess and could not be eaten as a sandwich before it fell apart.

    After working outside in the summertime heat, my Hubby likes light dinners. This was very refreshing, and surprisingly filling. Definetely a keeper.

    This might be my favorite summer recipe! I did use a substitute for the cajun seasoning. I used Zatarin's Blackened Seasoning. Close enough. And, I added 3 Tbsp. of sour cream to the dressing to make it creamy. I loved it!

    This is pretty good, but 1 pound of shrimp does not go far--it truly IS only 4 servings. My sons liked it without the dressing.
