Our Carb Conscious recipes have 42g or less of net carbohydrates (total carbohydrates minus dietary fiber) per serving, a 25% reduction in net carbs compared to the average Blue Apron recipe served in 2019. Due to the natural variation in size of and contribution of produce in our recipes, some recipes can be badged as Carb Conscious at 45g or less net carbs per serving.

Our Mediterranean recipes are inspired by the Mediterranean Diet, a healthy eating plan recommended in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans published jointly every five years by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS). This eating plan highlights the flavors and cooking styles from countries along the Mediterranean Sea, including those in Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa. These recipes showcase a wide variety of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains, as well as lean proteins and moderate portions of dairy.
Plant-Forward
Our Plant-Forward recipes are designed by our chefs to help support a flexible diet that emphasizes plant-based foods like fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, beans and other legumes like lentils and soy foods, and includes occasional, moderate portions of meat, poultry, fish, and seafood.

From the Test Kitchen

This Louisiana specialty combines the state’s diverse culinary influences. Crunchy-crusted French-style rolls are filled with fresh seafood seasoned to pleasantly spicy perfection. In our version, we’re putting a gourmet spin on this humble fare. With a butter lettuce salad and a traditional remoulade (a French sauce similar to tartar sauce), these shrimp sandwiches are our Mardi Gras salute to the Big Easy.

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Preheat the oven to 425°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Slice the rolls lengthwise, keeping them intact (they should look like hot dog buns). Quarter and deseed the lemon. Core the apple and cut into matchsticks; toss with the juice of 1 lemon wedge to prevent browning. Cut off and discard the root end of the lettuce; separate the leaves. Pick the parsley leaves off the stems; discard the stems. Toss the shrimp with the spice blend; season with salt and pepper.

Make the remoulade sauce & vinaigrette:
2 Make the remoulade sauce & vinaigrette:

In a medium bowl, combine the mayonnaise, sweet pickle relish and ⅔ of the mustard; season with salt and pepper to taste. In a small bowl, combine the remaining mustard and the juice of the remaining lemon wedges; season with salt and pepper to taste. Slowly whisk 2 tablespoons of olive oil into the mustard-lemon mixture until well combined. Set both bowls aside.

Toast the rolls:
3 Toast the rolls:

Place the sliced rolls on a sheet pan. Toast in the oven 3 to 5 minutes, or until lightly browned and crunchy. Remove from the oven and transfer to a clean, dry work surface.

Cook the shrimp:
4 Cook the shrimp:

While the rolls toast, in a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned shrimp and cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until opaque and cooked through. Remove from heat.

Assemble the sandwiches:
5 Assemble the sandwiches:

Line each toasted roll with 1 to 2 lettuce leaves. Top each with some of the remoulade sauce and half the cooked shrimp. Top with any remaining remoulade sauce, if desired.

Make the salad & plate your dish:
6 Make the salad & plate your dish:

Just before serving, in a large bowl, combine the apple, parsley and remaining lettuce. Add enough of the vinaigrette to coat the salad (you may have extra vinaigrette); toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Divide the sandwiches between 2 plates; serve with the salad and Tabasco hot sauce on the side. (Only use as much Tabasco as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be.) Enjoy!
