Cheesy Shrimp Ciabatta

For out last get together I made this delicious Cheesy Shrimp Ciabatta. This is an appetizer that shrimp fans will love. In our family this is one of our most favorite recipes. It's so delicious!

You can go with a baguette instead if you would like bite sized portions, but it is hard to beat a fresh loaf of ciabatta bread. The baguette slices will get much crunchier so if you prefer that mouth feel, you can go with a baguette. A fresh French bread would also work great. Enjoy!

Langostino Rolls

Depending on where in the world you are located, Langostino can be a variety of things. In the United States, Langotinos are typically the meat from a squat lobster, which confusingly enough isn't actually lobster. To many people the taste is somewhere in between a lobster and a shrimp. Personally they very much remind me of crawfish, which I love.

Finding these little guys may take a bit of looking around, but I have found them at places like Costco or Trader Joe's. They may tend to be a seasonal item as well, so if in doubt, call ahead and ask.

For this recipe we went with a classic Lobster Roll filling, which complimented the Langostino very well. Make sure to butter and toast your rolls for maximum flavor. Enjoy!

For our Langostino Roll preparation, the meat came already cooked. We defrosted the meat and after defrosting, gently squeezed the excess water out as it tends to hold onto a lot of fluid.

Langostino Rolls
Makes 4 servings

  • 1 1/2 lbs. langostino meat, cooked
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 Tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 inner celery stalks and leaves, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 4 rolls, split and lightly buttered
  • Melted butter, for brushing

1. In a bowl, combine the cooked langostino meat, mayonnaise, lemon juice, celery, parsley, and salt and pepper to taste. Chill for 10 minutes to develop the flavors.

2. Brush the cut sides of the rolls with melted butter and fill with the langostino salad.

  1. I had no idea that Costco and Trader Joe's sold langostino. Gonna put it on the shopping list!

  2. Oh my goodness! This looks so wonderful. The one and only time I ever had a sandwich like this was on the coast. In land-locked Oklahoma we don't have Costco or Trader Joe's but I will continue to look so I can make this tasty sandwich! YUM!

Stick of Butter Rice

This delicious side dish was a hit at my house. The raving over this recipe was intense. To put it mildly, everyone loved it.

Personally, I felt that the amount of butter could be cut down a bit in this recipe. I'll leave that up to you guys to decide what you think is best. I think I would go with 1/3 cup and see how that goes next time around. If you have unsalted butter I'd also recommend that you go with that, instead of the standard salted butter. Between the condensed soup and broth, it can get a bit salty.

Note that for this recipe you want to use standard white rice, not instant rice. Enjoy!
