Chipotle Shrimp Sandwiches with Jalapeno Peach Salsa

Smoky chipotle shrimp sandwiched between layers of cool avocado mayo and sweet and spicy jalapeno peach salsa make the ultimate summer sandwich. 

Sweet, spicy, and smoky these Chipotle Shrimp Sandwiches have it all!

When I was a kid, shrimp came in two forms: covered in butter and garlic or fried to a crispy crunch and plunged into cocktail sauce. It wasn’t until adulthood I discovered shrimp had a life outside of scampi. I saw shrimp trouncing all over the place–in tacos, on top of salads, and tucked under ribbons of linguine.

I figure if shrimp can sneak it’s way into all of those things, why not in between two layers of fluffy french bread?

That’s right. Shrimp just got sandwiched.

Chipotle Shrimp Sandwiches with Jalapeno Peach Salsa

Guys, this recipe is da bomb. I hardly ever say that, which should be an indication of how excited I am about this dish. I’m so excited, I’m not even speaking properly.

Think of this sandwich as your hot, sexy beach vacation all smashed up between two slices of bread. Too weird? Then just think of this as a darn good sandwich. Because that’s what it is.

Chipotle Shrimp + Avocado Mayo+ jalapeno Peach Salsa makes one killer sandwich.

Here’s the breakdown: spicy chipotle shrimp meets cool avocado mayo meets zesty jalapeno peach salsa. It’s sweet. It’s smoky. It’s got a kick that’ll keep you coming back for more.

There are very few recipes I make that instantly achieve stardom, but this was one of them. The Mr. immediately placed it in his Top 5, right next to the Tiramisu Brownie Parfaits and Crazy Cake. We’re already considering retiring this recipe’s jersey and entering it into the hall of fame.

So give ’em a try. Your mouth will thank you.

Smoky Chipotle Shrimp pairs beautiful with sweet and spicy peach salsa and avocado.

    For the salsa

    • 3 peaches, chopped
    • 2 jalapenos, mostly seeded and diced
    • 1/2 a large red onion, diced
    • Juice of 1 lime
    • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
    • Pinch salt

    For the shrimp

    • 1 lb. peeled and deveined shrimp
    • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 Tablespoon sauce from chipotles in adobo
    • 2 cloves garlic, grated

    3. Meanwhile, prepare the avocado mayo: in a small bowl, mash the avocado. Stir in mayo and chipotle.
    4. To assemble the sandwiches, spread the avocado mayo on top of the split bun. Layer it with lettuce, shrimp, and the peach salsa. Serve hot or cold.

    • kristy @ the wicked noodle July 21, 2014, 10:19 AM

      These look so awesome!! I love using shrimp in a sandwich, that salsa on top really makes it. YUM!!

    • Rebecca {foodie with family} July 21, 2014, 10:27 AM

      My husband would weep from joy if I made these for him!

    • Ginny McMeans July 21, 2014, 11:26 AM

      What a great combination. Looks wonderful!

    • Julie July 21, 2014, 12:18 PM

      This is gorgeous – and chipotle shrimp? Yes, please!

    • foody schmoody July 21, 2014, 12:19 PM

      I’ve never had shrimp in sandwich form. I like it.

      This post made me want to give you another huge hug, because YES. Not only do I miss you already, but when I was a kid, I thought I hated shrimp. This was because I had only had popcorn shrimp dipped in cocktail sauce (likely at Red Lobster or something of the like). I don’t know why, but I dipped every single piece in cocktail sauce, because I guess I assumed you were required to eat it that way. Turned out, I just hated the cocktail sauce! Now, I like shrimp of all kinds AND cocktail sauce, but I look back at that and laugh. Kids are so weird.

      This sandwich looks like the perfect combo of sweet and savory. I always seem to default to mango as a sweet component of dishes like this, but peaches are a great idea! To be honest, not a huge fan of peaches as in, just eating a peach on it’s own, but I like the flavor. This would be a great way to get some of those into my diet.

      Drop the mic, lady. You’re good.

      • Courtney @ Neighborfood July 22, 2014, 9:30 AM

        That’s so funny, because I NEVER think to use mango for stuff like this. Probably because the Mr. is a teeny bit allergic to it and he can’t taste anything for days after eating it (weird). I’m cracking up about the cocktail sauce. I’m just imagining you dipping every piece in and hating

        • Lori | Foxes Love Lemons July 22, 2014, 9:32 AM

          You know how a lot of people say they hate condiments? Like ALL CONDIMENTS? That is so not me. Even as a child, I had a deep-seeded love for condiments, to the point that I couldn’t imagine a fried shrimp without a sauce. Even a sauce I didn’t like!

          • Courtney @ Neighborfood July 22, 2014, 9:43 AM

            Yeah, that makes no sense to me. I’m the girl who orders chicken fingers and requests four different dipping sauces.

    • Ashley @ Wishes and Dishes July 21, 2014, 2:29 PM

      I love how you’re getting all creative with shrimp ideas! So delicious looking!

    • Brenda@SugarFreeMom July 21, 2014, 3:00 PM

      everything sounds delicious form the salsa to the shrimp!
