Cilantro Shrimp Salad on Sourdough Rolls

It's easy to confuse fresh parsley and cilantro at the grocery store; they're often displayed side by side. If you're in doubt, press a leaf between your fingers. Parsley has a fresh peppery fragrance while cilantro is more pungent. You'll need both in this recipe.
