  • 1 pound large raw fresh shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 tablespoon Cajun blackened seasoning for seafood
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp low-fat mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoon lime juice
  • 4 6-inch whole-wheat submarine rolls
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 tsp butter or margarine, divided
  • 2 medium green or red bell peppers, thinly-sliced
  • 2 clove garlic, minced



1. Toss the shrimp and Cajun seasoning in a small bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
2. Combine the mayonnaise, mustard, and lime juice; mix well. Set aside.
3. Split the submarine rolls. Pull out centers of the roll halves, leaving a 1-inch shell at the edges and a 1/2-inch at the bottoms. (The roll centers can be reserved for later use, such as making bread crumbs.) Set the rolls aside.
4. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add shrimp and sauté for 4-5 minutes or until shrimp are opaque. Remove the shrimp from skillet and set aside. Reduce the heat to medium. Add remaining butter to the skillet. Add peppers and sauté for 5 minutes. Add garlic and sauté for another 5 minutes or until peppers are tender.
5. Spread 2 teaspoons of the mayonnaise mixture in each roll bottom. Spoon pepper-garlic mixture evenly into roll bottoms. Spoon shrimp evenly over the pepper-garlic mixture.
6. Drizzle the remaining mayonnaise mixture evenly over shrimp, and cover with roll tops. Serve immediately.
