There’s a restaurant chain in Alberta and British Columbia by the name of White Spot. I discovered it when I used to live in Vancouver, B.C.. Though they exist in Alberta, sadly there are none here in Red Deer. I had a few favorite items on the White Spot menu that I would eat time and time again when I went to one. My absolute favorite being their “Shrimp On Toast”, it was a sandwich that just did it for me.

One day I set out to try and copy the sandwich at home. While it doesn’t taste exactly like White Spot’s it’s still a fave recipe that I keep making for myself. I’ve adapted it from my original recipe to lower the calories and happily it hasn’t altered the flavor one bit. The secret of this recipe is giving it time for the flavors to merge with the shrimp.

A half cup serving is more than enough for a sandwich or wrap. I use Silver Hill’s Little Big Bread, it’s a calorie reduced bread that is non GMO. When I make a sandwich the shrimp salad flows over. I sometimes skip the sandwich and have a double serving with raw vegetable on the side, it’s all about my mood and how much time I have to eat.
