Grilled Seafood Open Sandwich

I am sometimes amazed at myself.  I tell myself...I am lazy to cook , have something simple BUT it will always turn out not simple in terms of preparation.  It does look simple but don't be deceived by the appearance of these simple looking open sandwiches. They do entailed a bit of work. Being a fast worker, I whipped this up in an hour. Pan grilled the prawns and sutchi fish fillets while the bread are toasting in the toaster.  And while waiting, I will dice the tomato, red onion and cucumber to serve as salad base for the open sandwiches.  I am amazed that I can  multi task but sometimes I do get food burned while attending some other chores :p

When the prawns and fish fillets are grilled and cooked through, I stir fry the button mushrooms with lots of garlic, using back the same pan that I grilled the seafood...mmmmmm so scent-ous .  I love the smell of grilled prawns....heavenly !  Using the extra chilli flakes from Dominos and McD black pepper for flavoring and a shake of mixed herbs onto the mushrooms , the homey and soul lifting aroma does wonders to stir fried mushrooms.  

I assembled the sandwich with lettuce and the tomato and cucumber salad as base, topped with the mushroom slices and finished with the grilled prawns and fish sandwiches can be most appealing and delicious if you have the right ingredients to serve with.   Each bite is bursting with flavors.  Love it ! And I think I will make more open sandwiches for our dinner. So versatile !  A light and delicious meal and we both ended with a can of  chilled beer each....What say you ?  Given a choice, I would love to cook and eat in :)
