3/4 lb peeled, boiled shrimp or prawns
1 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese, warmed to room temperature
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tbsp mayonnaise
1/2 tsp Ms. Dash lemon-pepper seasoning
1/4 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp Tabasco or your favorite hot sauce
8 oz sweet tomato ketchup
3oz prepared horseradish
8 oz shredded Monterey Jack or Sharp Cheddar Cheese
3 green onions, chopped
2 medium avocados, sliced thin
1/2 cup chopped red, yellow or orange bell pepper (OPTIONAL)
Chop half of the cooked shrimp then, set aside.
Beat warmed cream cheese until light and fluffy. Add lemon juice, mayonnaise, lemon-pepper seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, and Tabasco. Beat until smooth.
Spread mixture onto one half of a french roll. Cover them all with plastic wrap and chill 30 minutes.
Mix ketchup and prepared horseradish to make a homemade cocktail sauce. Remove the bread from the refrigerator and uncover. Spread the homemade cocktail sauce evenly over the previous cream cheese mixture on each bread half.
The next layer for each sandwich is chopped shrimp. Next, a layer of thin avocado slices. Then, a heavy sprinkle of shredded cheese. Next, the chopped green onions. Finally, top with remaining ingredients (bell pepper) and other items you've chosen. For instance, chopped black or green olives; chopped pickled cabbage or cold, cooked, spicy black beans.
Top each bread half with a layer of the whole, cooked shrimp. Cover and chill again thoroughly.
Serve as soon as possible with sides of tartar sauce and/or more homemade cocktail sauce.
If you prefer serving your open-faced seafood delights warm - you can set them on the oven shelf at BROIL just before serving. Let them sit under the broiler for about two minutes to melt cheeses.
Now, pour a crisp glass of white wine and enjoy!
