Take your taste buds on a trip to the Northeast without leaving town, that’s exactly what I had in mind. Because as far as I know we don’t have a restaurant anywhere near St. Louis where we can order one of these yummy Classic Shrimp Rolls.
Lobster is out of our budget. Around here it’s way more expensive than a good steak, and being a seafood lover we’ve got to be creative. Another area where we had to get creative was with the split top buns, because you can not find them anywhere around here either.
But when I saw these pretty potato hot dog buns at a local bakery I thought these are going to some buttery, toasty delisiousness; with fresh shrimp and lemony dill mayo and a glass of white wine, be still my heart.
Yes, it was everything I imagined and then some, because it didn’t occur to me until later to slice the sides off the buns so they could soak up more buttery goodness while being toasted. So, my friends you can save on travel expense and make this awesome creation in the luxury of your own kitchen.
The dressing I used for this recipe is the classic way of making shrimp rolls, but you’re welcome to customize it by substituting cucumber for the celery, or by adding chiles or capers, Dijon mustard, horseradish or even Vegenaise. Some might prefer tarragon over dill, I’m not a fan of tarragon too much can take over the flavor profile, but everyone’s tastes are different. This would be awesome to pack in a cooler and head to the beach, a picnic, or pool side lunch!
