Shrimp Salad Sandwich Filling

I really like this as a filling for either toasted slices of brioche or for croissants. Add a nice bit of lettuce and enjoy.


¾ lb. medium (90-130 count) shrimp, coarsely chopped or whole if you prefer
4 – 6 Tbsp. mayonnaise
1 – 1 ½ Tbsp. Dijon mustard
Salt & freshly ground black pepper to taste
6 Tbsp. finely chopped green onions, or even better, chives from the garden
¾ tsp. finely grated lemon peel
1 Tbsp. finely chopped fresh dill

Combine 4 Tbsp. mayonnaise with the mustard, green onions or chives, lemon peel & dill. Fold in the shrimp with a spatula; season to taste with salt & pepper, adding more mayonnaise, if necessary. Divide between half the bread slices or croissants; top with lettuce & the remaining bread slices or croissant tops. Cut as desired & serve immediately.
