Shrimp Verde Flatbread

Picture yourself on a little beach somewhere in coastal South America, where shade is hard to find, the water is a gorgeous aquamarine, and the sand is glittering white. Sunbathing, even shadebathing, is hard work, and since you’ve already eaten all the chili dusted mango slices you packed this morning, you’re ready for lunch.

A little hole in the wall just footsteps away from the beach serving succulent shrimp with some sort of verde sauce is the only thing you can find to eat, so of course you buy a plate and dig in. One bite and you know you’ve struck gold, green gold! What is that amazing sauce, and how can it be so spicy and yet so intensely flavorful? Without hesitation you order another plate, this time to try and figure out how to replicate the sauce once you wake up….. Too late, the alarm rings and you realize it’s Wednesday and you have a work presentation in three hours. Talk about rude awakening! The sauce would have to wait…

This green sauce is anything but mean. Oh, yes, it’s spicy, but that’s part of its allure. I make up batches of this sauce in the food processor to use in flatbread recipes, eggs, pizzas, almost everything that could use a fiery little kick. In this recipe, it acts as a nice, zesty base for your cooked shrimp. It truly is the stuff dreams are made of!

BBQ Shrimp Pizza

Seriously, is there anything that doesn’t go well with BBQ sauce? My current hometown just doesn’t understand it, but my old hometown, Kansas City, is the capital of barbecue, so everyone there, well, they understand. The grocery stores in KC have an aisle dedicated to their beloved sauces, and here? Maybe one or two kinds, tops, and neither is very good.

Never fear, because down in my basement, I have a cabinet stocked for the year with all my favorite saucy varieties, brought in whenever I make a visit. The bottles make great gifts, as they introduce newbies to what makes a “real” sauce. Next time you’re in KC or some other famous BBQ town, stop at a grocery store and stock up on sauce. Bring a bottle along with your favorite wine or beverage. Your friends will love you for it!

In our house, barbecue sauce tastes great on everything. It really does! You’d be hard pressed to find a ketchup bottle anywhere, but  we’ll add sauce to wedges of crispy potatoes, some leftover chicken, steak, pork, and in this flatbread recipe, shrimp! Its spicy sweetness is perfect for this flatbread, which I load up with freshly chopped onions and cilantro when it comes out of the oven.

This flatbread recipe comes together in under twenty minutes, even if you have frozen shrimp. Perfect for a weeknight dinner or fun lunch any day of the week.

Cashew Shrimp Wrap

A perfect summer flatbread wrap, if ever there was one! This wrap is packed with tons of crisp cool veggies and spicy curry shrimp, the ideal lunch or dinner when the weather is blazing and you want something light but interesting to eat.

Lightly dressed ribbon-cut veggies make good options in place of rice noodles in this spring roll inspired meal. In fact, if you have a vegetable noodler, by all means make it work for you here. (I’m waiting to find one at a rummage sale! Someone is bound to get rid of one sooner or later.)

Nuoc cham is the key to this wrap, and a basic one can be found here if you feel like making your own, otherwise store bought is just fine too. Or perhaps you have some left over from last night’s bun, in which case I would applaud your thriftiness!

The last time I made this wrap to bring into work, my co-workers eyeballed it, and, one by one, came up and asked me where the new lunch place was. It makes a delicious first impression, so they were a little jealous that I made it myself, and they couldn’t buy another one that day for their own lunch. I promised that I would share my recipe, though, and after some tweaking and adjusting, here it is. Take that, officemates; the secret is out!

Now that you have the recipe, you can be as stingy or as generous with it as you like. Just make it often, and enjoy!
