Notes

*To cook the shrimp, bring 6 cups of water and 1 teaspoon of kosher salt to a slow boil over high heat.  When water reaches a boil, add shrimp, remove from heat, cover, and allow shrimp to poach in the liquid for 5 minutes, or until bright pink and firm. Strain shrimp and place in an ice bath to stop the cooking process. After 1 minute, remove shrimp from ice bath and carefully peel and devein shrimp.  Finish by slicing the shrimp in half lengthwise for use in the mixture above.

  • 1/2 Teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • 4 fresh sweet rolls, cut in half and toasted

Look to the deli for cold-cuts and cheeses sliced to order; they'll taste fresher than their vacuum-sealed counterparts.
