Quick Shrimp, Tomato, & Cheese TORTILLA SANDWICH

Table of Contents: SANDWICHES


Make this sandwich with leftover cooked shrimp, if you have some.  Otherwise, buy uncooked shrimp; then peel, wash, and sauté the shrimp in butter.  Season the shrimp with salt and pepper, or with a spicy salt to add a “kick” to the sandwich.


The recipe ingredients are for one sandwich.  That way you can make one, or as many sandwiches as you need, simply by multiplying the ingredients.


1 thin slice of butter or margarine.

1 (10”) flour tortilla

1 thin to medium slice of sharp Cheddar cheese

1 thin to medium slice of tomato; chop & salt, then discard any extra juice

½ of a thin slice of onion

3 large or 4 medium cooked shrimp, cut into chunks

Use an iron or a non-stick skillet.  Slowly melt the butter in the skillet; then place the tortilla into the skillet.  Put the cheese slice in the center of one side of the tortilla in order for it to be folded later.  Then top the cheese slice with the remaining ingredients.


Heat skillet to medium-high; then reduce heat to medium.  Fold the tortilla in half to begin grilling by gently pressing downward on the folded sandwich.  Grill until lightly browned; then turn and grill on the other side until lightly browned.  Flip the sandwich back and forth several times to thoroughly melt the cheese and get the sandwich completely hot.


I usually keep a package of flour tortillas in my refrigerator since they are a great substitute for bread when making sandwiches.  If you keep them tightly sealed in a zip-lock bag, they stay fresh very nicely for a reasonable length of time.
