Shrimp Banh Mi

From EatingWell:  June/July 2005, The EatingWell Healthy in a Hurry Cookbook (2006)

French colonial rule in Vietnam influenced the country's cooking profoundly, as here with this street-food sandwich (banh mi), usually served on a baguette. The spicy mayo melange really adds tartness and spice.

6 sandwiches | Active Time: 25 minutes | Total Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Place carrot and vinegar in a small bowl; stir to combine. Let marinate while preparing the rest of the ingredients.
  2. Place cilantro, mayonnaise, yogurt, fish sauce, lime juice and cayenne in a medium bowl; stir to combine. Spread 2 teaspoons of this sauce on the bottom half of each baguette. Add shrimp to the remaining sauce; toss to coat. Using a slotted spoon, divide carrot among the baguettes (discard vinegar). Top with shrimp, cucumber and scallions. Cut each baguette into two 6-inch sandwiches.
