Creamy Shrimp Rolls

I made these back in the summer and was surprised at how tasty they were! I love lobster rolls, but I don't always have the money to buy lobster and when I tried making it with frozen, canned lobster, well, it wasn't that great, but these shrimp rolls are kind of like a poor mans lobster roll ;)

Recipe courtesy of Real Simple magazine:

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • kosher salt and pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds cooked medium shrimp, cut in half crosswise
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1/4 cup sliced chives (optional)
  • 4 hot dog buns
  • 1 small head butter lettuce, torn into pieces
  • 1 5-ounce bag potato chips
  • In a medium bowl, whisk the mayonnaise, lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
  • Fold in the shrimp, celery, and chives, if desired.
  • Line the buns with the lettuce and fill with the shrimp mixture. Serve with the potato chips.


  1. Is that kind of like "poor mans tuna casserole" lol?? Mac n cheese, a can of tuna, and peas. :) Good stuff!

  2. I love shrimp and all tossed onto a soft roll makes them look even better. I am beyond starving!!!!
