AVOCADO SHRIMP FLATBREAD SANDWICH

Posted on

Amazing flatbread sandwich that’s packed with sauteed shrimp, creamy avocado, crunchy cucumbers, and feta cheese crumbles. Perfect light sandwich that will leave you quite satisfied.

Aside from the Shrimp and Pesto Panzanella Salad, this was our favorite dish from the sister weekend. Since I have the chance now, I like to introduce my sister to as many different dishes as I can. She used to be as picky and my little man when it came to new foods, but thankfully, she has grown out of that phase.

She and I love avocados and she actually likes some seafood too, so I get to make avocado and seafood dishes while she spends time at my house. My husband hates seafood, won’t even touch it, and is not a fan of avocados either. Any chance I get to make dishes with these ingredients for someone other than myself, I jump on. It really is much more fun to cook for others than yourself. I’m a praise junkie, I love to hear how much people enjoy what I create. If I was a puppy, I’d wag my tail every time!

I’d definitely wag my tail at this shrimp and avocado loaded flatbread. Okay, I may have wagged a little, but what’s not to love here?! It’s super simple to make and can be done in 15-20 minutes. Getting a tasty, fresh sandwich in just a few minutes, without leaving your house, is just the kind of recipe most people look for.

I love this flatbread sandwich for several reasons. For one, I love using avocados in sandwiches because with it’s creaminess, you never need to add mayo or other sauces. Two, you get a much-desired crunch in the sandwich with an addition of fresh cucumber. So satisfying! Feta cheese is the perfect addition to the cucumber and avocado mixture and a nice compliment to the shrimp. All the flavors are brought together by a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.
