Ingredients

  • 2 part-baked white baguettes
  • 200g frozen scampi
  • ½ iceberg lettuce
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 4 gherkins
  • 1 small garlic clove
  • 3 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp hot sauce
  • lemon wedges, to serve

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Put the baguettes on a baking tray and put the scampi on a second baking tray lined with foil. Put both trays in the oven and bake for 15 mins, turning the baguettes halfway so they cook evenly.

  • STEP 2

    Meanwhile, slice the lettuce, tomatoes and gherkins. Crush the garlic clove into the mayonnaise and mix with the hot sauce and a little bit of juice from the gherkin jar. Season.

  • STEP 3

    Split the baguettes down the middle lengthways. Generously spread the mayonnaise inside, then cram with the lettuce, tomatoes, gherkins and scampi. Squeeze over lemon juice to serve.
