  • 1/3 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
  • 1 tablespoon chopped shallots
  • 1 teaspoon capers, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce (such as Tabasco)
  • 1 pound peeled and deveined large shrimp
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt-free Cajun seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 4 (2 1/2-ounce) hoagie rolls
  • 1/2 cup shredded romaine lettuce
  • 8 thin tomato slices
  • 4 thin red onion slices


  1. Combine first 5 ingredients in a small bowl. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Combine shrimp and Cajun seasoning in a bowl; toss well. Add olive oil to pan, and swirl to coat. Add shrimp to pan; cook 2 minutes on each side or until done.
  2. Cut each roll in half horizontally. Top bottom half of each roll with 2 tablespoons lettuce, 2 tomato slices, 1 onion slice, and one quarter of shrimp. Spread top half of each roll with about 2 tablespoons mayonnaise mixture; place on top of sandwich.
  3. Carrot and cabbage slaw: Combine 4 cups shredded green cabbage and 1 cup shredded carrot in a large bowl. Combine 3 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon cider vinegar, and 1/4 teaspoon celery seeds in a small bowl. Add mayonnaise mixture to cabbage mixture; stir well.

Chef’s Notes: Using salt-free Cajun seasoning reduces the sodium in this dish without sacrificing any of the flavor. Carrot and cabbage slaw makes for a crunchy side dish. (recipe: MyRecipes.com)
