A creamy, seasoned shrimp roll sandwich that is simple, quick and will leave you perfectly satisfied!
The first time I spied a freshly cooked lobster was when my husband and I vacationed in Sanibel Island, Florida. Since we are from land locked Ohio, we crave seafood every time we are down south. I was all set to try my very first lobster. I was bursting with the anticipation of dunking that tender lobster into warm, silky butter. Thankfully the lady at the table next to me ordered lobster before I ordered mine because it only took one look at that bright red crustacean for me to know that I will never, ever eat lobster.
Let me clarify, I will never eat lobster in it’s shell! It wasn’t as much the lobster as the carnage left on the plate AFTER the lobster was consumed. That was the grossest thing I have ever seen. And all the work!!! Who wants to work up a sweat while trying to pry a tiny piece of meat from a claw? Not me. Here I am 14 years later, and I have yet to try a lobster. The same holds true for crab legs. I gag a little just thinking about them. The only shellfish I can handle and enjoy are shrimp. They are so much easier. Yes, shelling and deveining shrimp are bit unappetizing, but definitely better options for someone like me.
These rolls are so easy to prepare and taste fabulous. You will need a pound of medium, deveined shrimp for this recipe which you will boil and coarsely chop and add to a bowl along with mayo, Old Bay seasoning, lemon juice and a few veggies. Pile this mixture into a split top hot dog roll that has been lightly brushed with butter. This sandwich tastes light and fresh. It’s a simple recipe for a summer lunch or dinner!
Speaking of sandwiches: I have a little something up my sleeve! I spent the last 6 months eating, lots and lots of sandwiches. See, I wrote a little cook book A sandwich cook book to be exact. It has truly been a labor of love. I am one lucky lady to have been given this opportunity. It comes out in November, but it is available for pre order now! I’m excited, humbled, nervous and proud all at once. Thank you Lulu readers for reading my blog!
