I can’t really tell you where the idea for a shrimp roll came from. Perhaps it was a bag of shrimp in the freezer and the longing for lobster. Perhaps it was seeing Paula Deen make a lobster roll, and realizing that it is essentially a glorified tuna salad sandwich. Perhaps it was the one time a year I have hot dog buns in the freezer. Perhaps it was finally time to try out that Wasabi Mayo that has been in the cupboard for months.
Wasabi Shrimp Roll – 2 rolls
- 2 cups roughly chopped shrimp
- 1/2 cup chopped celery
- 1/4 cup chopped green onion
- 2 Tbsp wasabi mayonnaise (From Trader Joe’s)
- 2 hot dog buns
- optional: black sesame seeds and sriracha
Combine first four ingredients.
Toast buns on grill if desired. Top buns with shrimp mixture.
It’s perhaps the best sandwich I’ve had this month.
