Shrimp Banh Mi

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

Your rating: None Average: 4.4 (25 votes)

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.



READER'S COMMENT:
"Why not replace the baguettes with a wrap of romaine lettuce or endives. You save the carbs and I'm sure that option would keep the fresh taste of the shrimp just as well. :) "

Great recipe. Only thing I'd add is to toast the baguette in the oven so it's warm and crisp. I also added sliced japaleno, and omitted the mayonnaise and just used greek yogurt. It was delicious! I can't wait to make this again.

Guilt-free awesome sandwich

This sandwich is creamy yet refreshing. At my place, we are huge fans of Asian inspired cuisine, but a lot of recipes call for a lot of oil to fry the food. This is a great alternative! I added a little bit of curry and cumin powder to my sauce to make it extra tasty. I was great!

Super easy to make, absolutely delicious, great when it's warm out because of the short cooking time

Then it wouldn't be a Bahn

Then it wouldn't be a Bahn Mi, it'd be closer to a spring roll

This was really good, and better than I expected! The marinaded carrots, shrimp & sauce combination was perfect. I toasted the bread, just a personal preference. We will absolutely make this again!

Simple to make and delicious. I will especially enjoy making this on a really hot summer night when I don't want to turn on the oven.
