Spanish Shrimp Sandwich

Spanish Shrimp Sandwich

Two tapas classics – garlic shrimp and pan con tomate – meet in one gorgeous open-faced sandwich. Cut the bread smaller and it’s a tapas again. Smoked paprika – also known as Pimenton – adds smoky flavor and an earthy red hue.

  • Servings: Makes 4 open-faced sandwiches


  1. Slice the baguette into 4 6-inch lengths, and then split it in half lengthwise to form 8 6-inch pieces. Toast. Rub with the tomato half.
