This simple shrimp salad sandwich roll recipe is a great alternative to a lobster roll. You can serve it on bread, in a wrap, or on a bed of lettuce, for a fresh light meal whenever you're craving seafood.
It's fairly easy to find fresh or raw shrimp around here, but fresh lobster tails are much harder to come by and quite expensive. The taste, though not the same, is similar, and I think worthy of a try, especially if you are looking for ways to cut back on your red meat consumption.

Shrimp Salad Sandwich Roll
You can buy frozen shrimp, but I would steer you away from buying already cooked shrimp. It just doesn't have the same flavor and since the ingredients are few, raw shrimp is best.
One of the key ingredients used in this recipe is Old Bay seasoning. This is the same spice used in the One Pot Shrimp Boil and the Quick and Easy Steamed Shrimp recipe. It's great with seafood, and my husband will tell you that it's good on just about everything.
If you're looking for another way to add more seafood to your diet you definitely should try making this shrimp salad recipe. It will keep in the refrigerator for a day or two if you want to serve it as a sandwich one day, and a salad the next.
