Summertime Shrimp Roll

You know how those fancy-schmancy lobster rolls get all the attention? Well thanks to fellow foodie blogger Tom over at The Bonafide Farm Food Journal we can all now enjoy what he calls “the lobster roll’s better more lovable brother.” Hop on over to his blog and read about what he thinks! It’s a good read.

I adapted his recipe to make only two sandwiches since my daughter was away that night for dinner. I also lightened it up a bit and used half mayo, half lowfat Greek yogurt. This hoagie just came out INCREDIBLE! It’s not only pretty to look at, it is pretty danged delicious. And it’s super-easy to make, too. Try it, you’ll like it!

Shrimp Roll Ingredients

Bring a 2-quart pot of water with 1 tablespoon of salt up to a roiling boil. Add the shrimp and cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Drain the shrimp in a colander and run cold water over them. Remove the shells and tails then chop the shrimp into 1/2-inch pieces and add to a mixing bowl.

Add the rest of the ingredients except the rolls and lettuce to the shrimp. Mix until well-combined.

Split the buns from the top, line with leaves of lettuce and top with the shrimp salad. Serve with sliced dill pickles and potato chips.

    Kathryn, I kid you not — my stomach growled when I saw the photo! It looks so good — and easy too. Do you have a good suggestion to use instead of mayonnaise? (I’m allergic to eggs, and I don’t like the “imitation” mayo.)
    Mega hugs my friend! 😀

      Teagan, just go ahead and use all Greek yogurt instead of half mayo. It should turn out just as great! Thank you so much. Hugs back!

    Shrimp subbed for lobster is fine and dandy, but what really impressed me about this is your use of the sugar snaps. Wow! Good stuff!

      I made this again last night, it was still as good as the first time I made it last week so it wasn’t a one-hit wonder, lol. This is going in our summer rotation, for sure! I hope you enjoy it Mel, thank you!

    I could go for one of those right now, Kathryn! I really don’t know why lobster gets all the press. Shrimp have much more flavor!
