For the Caesar Dressing (Or Use 3/4 cup Store-bought Dressing):
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon anchovy paste
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
For the Shrimp Sandwiches:
  • 1 1/2 pound jumbo 16/20 shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, separated
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cups Romaine lettuce chopped, washed and dried
  • 4 Ciabatta buns halved
  • 1/4 cup shaved Parmesan cheese
  1. For the Caesar dressing, in a blender or food processor, combine mayonnaise, Parmesan, lemon juice, dijon, anchovy paste, Worcestershire sauce, a 1/4 teaspoon of salt and a 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper. Process until smooth. With the motor running, remove the feed tube and slowly drizzle in a 1/3 cup of olive oil. Set aside until ready to use.

  2. For the shrimp, preheat the oven to 400° and have ready a large rimmed baking sheet (possibly two), lined with nonstick aluminum foil.
  3. Place shrimp on the baking sheet, drizzle with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 1 teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper. Toss until evenly coated with oil and seasoning. Spread apart so there is a small amount of space between each shrimp.

  4. Bake for 10 minutes, or until the shrimp is pink in color and slightly firm to the touch. Set aside until ready to use. Leave the oven on.
  5. Have ready a sheet pan. Drizzle the cut side of the Ciabatta buns with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Bake for 6-8 minutes, or just until toasted. Set aside to cool slightly.
  6. Place Romaine lettuce in a small bowl. Add 2 tablespoons of dressing and toss to combine. Smear the bottom bun with desired amount of Caesar dressing. Divide shrimp amongst the buns, and top with the dressed lettuce. Sprinkle with shaved Parmesan and add the top bun. Serve and enjoy.
Recipe Notes

To shave Parmesan, run a vegetable peeler firmly along the wedge of cheese and allow the wedges to fall on your work surface.
