Chipotle Shrimp Sandwiches with Jalapeno Peach Salsa

Smoky chipotle shrimp sandwiches combine layers of cool avocado mayo and sweet and spicy jalapeno peach salsa to 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 fettuccine.

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

That’s right. Shrimp just got sandwiched.

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.

  1. Ok I saw these first thing this morning on Foodgawker, and now I’m craving this shrimp sandwich for breakfast. Weird? I simply don’t care πŸ˜€

  2. Yay for hot, sexy beach vacations and shrimp sammiches! Courtney, this looks amazing! I don’t cook with shrimp enough (because I’m an idiot). Future Nancy and Future Tony will be thanking you for this recipe when they’re noshing on kick ass chipotle shrimp sandwiches.

  3. Want, want, want! See? I’m not speaking properly either. I believe you when you say this sandwich is da bomb! I’m gonna make this. Mmm hmm. Yes, I am.

  4. This looks amazing! And I completely agree about there only being two kinds of shrimp as a kid so putting it into a sandwich form is just genius!

  5. BEST SANDWICH EVER!! Oh my gosh I love this idea! I never thought about shrimp and salsa in my sammies. This needs to be lunch!

  6. Wow!! What a sexy looking sandwich!! Instant success, eh? That rarely happens to me either – it usually takes some tweaking but I’m super glad you had a home run!! YUM!!

  7. I am a former shrimp hater ( never even tried one until 2 years ago! Now I am a shrimp LOVER and this sandwich looks so good to me right now!

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

  9. 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.

    1. 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 every.single.one.

      1. 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!

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