2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep and cook the shrimp

  • Rinse the shrimp, then drain on a paper-towel-lined plate and pat dry. Season lightly with salt, pepper, and half the San Francisco Bay seasoning; save the remaining seasoning for another use.

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the shrimp and cook, turning once, until firm and cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes per side for regular shrimp, 2 to 3 minutes per side for jumbo shrimp. Transfer to a cutting board to cool slightly, then coarsely chop. Transfer the shrimp to a medium bowl and refrigerate until cool. Wipe out the pan. 

While the shrimp cooks and cools, prepare the pickled onion.


Pickle the onion

  • Peel the onion and thinly slice enough to measure ½ cup [1 cup]. Coarsely chop enough of the remaining onion to measure ¼ cup [½ cup] and set aside for the shrimp Louie.
In a large bowl, combine the sliced onion and red wine vinegar. Season lightly with salt and toss to coat. Let stand, stirring occasionally, while you prepare the rest of the meal.


Toast the ciabatta

  • Cut the ciabatta in half horizontally; drizzle or brush the cut sides with 1 to 2 teaspoons oil and season with salt.
Heat the same pan used for the shrimp over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Place the ciabatta, cut sides down, and cook until lightly browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate.


Finish the shrimp Louie and butter lettuce salad

  • Trim the root end from the lettuce; remove 2 [4] of the largest outer leaves for the sandwiches. Coarsely chop the remaining lettuce.
  • Cut away the core from the tomato; thinly slice the tomato. Set aside a few slices for the sandwiches.

To the bowl with the shrimp, add the Thousand Island dressing and chopped onion and stir to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
To the bowl with the pickled onion, add the chopped lettuce, remaining tomato slices, and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil and toss to coat. Season generously with salt and pepper.


Place the ciabatta bottoms on individual plates and top each with a lettuce leaf, the remaining tomato slices, and the shrimp Louie. Close with the ciabatta tops. Serve the butter lettuce salad on the side.
