Bánh mì—a staple of Vietnamese cuisine—is an irresistible sandwich named for the crunchy, fluffy bread it’s made with. ("Bánh" means "bread" and "mì" means "wheat" in Vietnamese.) In this recipe, we’re turning báhn mì into a delicious dinner by filling the sandwiches with authentically spiced shrimp and a pair of complementary toppings: Vietnamese-style pickled onion and carrot and a creamy aioli (made with sriracha for a dash of heat). We're using the pickles again in a beet side salad, dressed with a unique vinaigrette featuring the pickling liquid for sweet, tangy piquancy.

Shrimp Bánh Mì with Pickled Vegetables & Beet Salad ingredients
Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Heat a medium pot of salted water to boiling on high. Cut off and discard the ends of the beet; peel and medium dice on a paper towel-lined cutting board. Peel, halve and thinly slice the onion. Peel and grate the carrot. Slice the rolls lengthwise, leaving them intact. Pick the cilantro leaves off the stems; discard the stems. To make the sriracha mayo, in a bowl, combine the mayonnaise and as much of the sriracha as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be; season with salt and pepper to taste. Pat the shrimp dry with paper towels; place in a bowl. Season with salt, pepper and the spice blend; toss to coat.
