It had been a lazy day spent mostly writing and I didn't want to put together anything overly complicated for dinner. At the same time, a few of my favourite cooking shows were on (Master Chef, Hells Kitchen, and Next Food Network Star all on the same night!) making the thought of a portable dinner in front of the TV that much more attractive.
I've mentioned before that I always keep a few go to ingredients on hand for quick dinners; one of them is minute steaks, and the other is frozen shrimp - which got me to thinking... what about putting them together on a toasted bun?
So that's what I did!
And it was absolutely delicious!
Steak and Shrimp Sandwiches
- 4 sandwich steaks
- Montreal Steak Seasoning (or a blend of garlic powder, salt, and pepper)
- 1 cup medium shrimp, cooked, and tossed in 1/2 cup seafood sauce

- 1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice
- 1/2 tsp dijon mustard
- 1 sliced ripe tomato
- baby spinach or arugula
- 4 fresh kaiser rolls
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- Season steaks with salt, pepper, and garlic powder or Montreal Steak Spice.
- Broil or grill steaks a minute per side, set aside
- Mix the mayonnaise, basil, Dijon mustard, and lemon juice together
- Brush olive oil on both sides of the buns and broil or grill app 30 seconds until golden and crispy.
