Spicy Kickoff Shrimp Hoagies

A few years back there was a contest that needed to incorporate mustard into a game day dish.  Hence, the Spicy Kickoff Shrimp Hoagie was invented.  This recipe layers a lot of flavors and is super easy to make.  It starts by using frozen breaded shrimp, that once cooked, are tossed in a homemade spicy butter compound, that melts to create a sauce.  The sandwiches are topped with a slaw tossed with a mustard ranch dressing, and the remaining dressing is served on the side.  Give this one a try!!
