Shrimp Sandwiches with Tarragon-Caper Mayo

I pulled out the recipe below to use as a quick week night dinner for an evening when I had a meeting but still wanted my husband to have something to resort to other than a microwave meal! I made one for myself before running out the door...and while I thought they had a good flavor, I thought the consistency was not so great (a little too mushy). I'm big on consistency (don't like jello for example...and definitely not jello with chunks of fruit in it! eek!). Maybe more celery next time to add some more crunch?
