These open-faced sandwiches are topped with tons of tasty ingredients: shrimp, avocado, bacon, and mayonnaise. For a sturdy sandwich base, use a thicker cut of bread.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook bacon in a medium skillet over medium heat 12 minutes or until crisp; remove bacon, and drain on paper towels, reserving 2 Tbsp. drippings in skillet. Cut bacon into 1-inch pieces.

Step 2

Cook shrimp and 1/2 tsp. salt in hot drippings over medium-high heat 2 minutes on each side or until bright pink. Remove from heat, and stir in pepper and 2 Tbsp. lemon juice.

Step 3

Toss together arugula, tomatoes, corn kernels, onion slices, olive oil, bacon, and remaining lemon juice.

Step 4

Rub 1 side of each bread slice lightly with garlic. Spread about 1/2 Tbsp. mayonnaise on each bread slice; top with avocado slices and shrimp mixture. Sprinkle with chopped dill, and serve with arugula mixture.

Garlic, shrimp, bacon and avocado! What not to like

April 24, 2016
This is an easy and tasty mix. I barbaqued the corn which added a nice flavor. We enjoyed the backyard sun while tasting garlic and shrimp. I did add extra garlic to the mayo. Really easy and tasty.

Good combo!

Excellent combination of favors! The salad pairs beautifully with the sandwich. I used a mixed leaf lettuce, but followed rest of the directions exactly. Refreshing hot day dinner.
