Shrimp and Guacamole Panini

by | Dec 5, 2013 | Seafood | 0 comments

I’ve been having fun with this Nuwave Oven we recently put in to service. I’ve found it’s quick and easy to cook up some shrimp for a snack or sandwich.


8 small to medium shrimp; peeled and deveined

1 small to medium avocado

1/2 Roma tomato (or a small part of any other tomato); chopped fine

1/2 shallot; peeled and chopped fine

1 or two cloves of garlic; minced

2 T or so of mayonnaise

shot of hot sauce, or a sprinkle of cayenne

4 slices of French Bread

garlic powder



slices of smoked gouda or other favorite cheese


Sprinkle shrimp with garlic powder, paprika, and cayenne. Mix well and set aside.

Preheat Foreman Cooker; combine flesh of the avocado with the chopped tomato, garlic, and shallot; add mayo and stir till well blended.

Spread a bit of the guacamole on one side of each slice of bread.

Place shrimp on top rack of Nuwave, and cook for 2 minutes; turn and cook another 2 minutes. If not quite done, cook another 30 seconds or so.

Place 3-4 shrimp on one slice of bread; top with cheese; cover with another slice of bread. Press in Foreman cooker or other panini style cooker for a few minutes.

Remove when golden brown, and repeat with the other sandwich. If desired garnish with a slice of dill pickle.
