The trouble with making sandwiches with shrimp is that the little guys have a tendency to slip and slide around a bit. I’ve played around with a lot of different shrimp panini concepts and I finally figured out the key to making them work: a wide berth of bread.

Give shrimp a little wiggle room—either on a dense sliced bread or a wider ciabatta—and they play nicely with your other ingredients. Which is a very good thing, because these Greek Shrimp Panini with Pesto, Feta and Sun-Dried Tomatoes deserve to be grilled as often as possible.

Feta + Pesto + Sun Dried Tomato is definitely a winning combo. I love getting a sample of that dip each time I pass by the hummus guy at the Farmer’s Market. Paired with shrimp between two pieces of grilled bread? Heaven!
