In anticipation of warmer weather, here is a Vietnamese sandwich that makes a quick and easy dinner with less than 300 calories per serving!

 

Yield

Makes 6 servings

 

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup carrots, peeled and shredded
  • 1/2 cup daikon radish, peeled and shredded
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons low-fat plain yogurt
  • 3/4 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3 12-inch baguettes, halved lengthwise
  • 1 pound peeled cooked shrimp, tails removed
  • 18 thin slices of cucumber
  • 3 scallions, thinly sliced lengthwise and cut into 2-inch pieces

 

Preparation

  1. Place carrot, radish, sugar, salt and vinegar in a small bowl; stir to combine. Let marinate while preparing the rest of the ingredients.
  2. Place cilantro, mayonnaise, yogurt, fish sauce, lime juice and cayenne in a medium bowl; stir to combine. Spread 2 teaspoons of this sauce on the bottom half of each baguette. Add shrimp to the remaining sauce; toss to coat.
  3. Using a slotted spoon, divide carrot mixture among the baguettes (discard vinegar). Top with shrimp, cucumber and scallions. Cut each baguette into two 6-inch sandwiches.
