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.

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 in 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.

  1. Oh Patti – this look amazing! I Love shrimp and think I would just enjoy this as is and skip the bread. Oh and think about this… mix in some fresh spinach. Had a tasty spinach salad today so It’s on the brain. Thanks for this recipe.

    This looks so yummy. I agree with you about buying raw shrimp. They just taste so much better than the precooked. I have found though that you can add flavor to the cooked kind by thawing them in a little salted water. Then drain them on paper towels and pat dry.

    I am going to make this for hubby and I soon. I added old bay seasoning to my grocery list.

    Here is my favorite recipe for shrimp.

    These are just wonderful. They taste good made with any protein. Salami, ham, chopped chicken. They absolutely disappear when I take them to a potluck.

    • Hi Marie,

      I’m so glad that you are interested in the shrimp roll recipe. I hope your husband, son and you love.
