*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.


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.
