Combine all of the ingredients, except for the rolls, into a mixing bowl and carefully mix until thoroughly combined. Add a generous serving of the shrimp mixture to the bottom side of each toasted roll and top with remaining slice. Serve.


*To cook the shrimp, bring 6 cups of water and 1 teaspoon of kosher salt to a slow boil over high heat.  When water reaches a boil, add shrimp, remove from heat, cover, and allow shrimp to poach in the liquid for 5 minutes, or until bright pink and firm. Strain shrimp and place in an ice bath to stop the cooking process. After 1 minute, remove shrimp from ice bath and carefully peel and devein shrimp.  Finish by slicing the shrimp in half lengthwise for use in the mixture above.
