wasabi shrimp roll

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.

    I LOVE wasabi on anything. I make a wasabi coleslaw that is like crack. I usually just add wasabi paste to mayo, but may have to give Trader Joe’s a try.

    This looks so delicious – I was expecting sushi with the title, but was pleasantly surprised to see a sandwich! A sandwich I can make :) I have tons of rolls from a barbeque and some frozen shrimp. I might be breaking out this recipe one night this week. Thanks!!

    wasabi is so good! i was once at a resturant that served a ball of wasabi as as a part of a tuna dish. a woman ate the whole thing at once thinking it was a melon ball. whoops! caused quite the scene!
