New Orleans Shrimp Melt

Updated On: Oct 03, 2023

Can you believe it’s been 3 weeks since we started the #SeriousSandwich blogalong for Emeril’s latest book Kicked-Up Sandwiches?  It’s flown by, just like it did last year when I promo’d his book Sizzling Skillets and Other One-Pot Wonders.  It’s been a fun ride and I’m sad that it’s coming to an end tomorrow.  There’s still time to enter to win his cookbook.  The giveaway ends tonight (Wednesday 10-24) at 9 pm PST.  So head over to the Eggplant Muffuletta post today!

Yesterday I made the New Orleans Shrimp Melt from the Kicked-Up Sandiwches cookbookfor lunch.  I changed it around a little as I had made the Pumpernickel bread, also from the book, and it is too good to not eat for every meal.  The recipe in the book calls for brioche or Challah, which I am sure would be incredible as well.  The Pumpernickel added a sweet nutty flavor to the already outstanding shrimp salad.  Melt cheese on top and BAM…party in your mouth.  Here’s the link to Emeril’s Pumpernickel Bread recipe on his website.  It’s easy to make and so delish.  I have been eating it every morning toasted with a slather of butter.  Heaven!  The shrimp melt recipe has not been published so I am unable to provide it for you.  But if you win the cookbook (or buy it), I suggest making it first.  It’s easy and so good.
