Notes

*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.

Ingredients

  • 1 Pound cooked large Gulf shrimp, peeled and deveined and sliced in half lengthwise*
  • 1/2 red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, finely chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons capers, drained
  • Juice from 1/2 a lemon
  • 2 Tablespoons mayonnaise
  • Dash of Tabasco sauce
  • 1/2 Teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • 4 fresh sweet rolls, cut in half and toasted

Directions

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.

Shrimp Roll Shopping Tip

Look to the deli for cold-cuts and cheeses sliced to order; they'll taste fresher than their vacuum-sealed counterparts.
