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.
