Sustainable Choice: For a "best choice" purchase, look for U.S. Pacific white shrimp farmed in recirculating systems or inland ponds.
If you prefer a milder sandwich, omit the ground red pepper.

It took me longer to locate the slider rolls at the store than it did to throw this together. The only modification I made to the recipe was using cooked shrimp instead of raw, as it was what I had in the freezer. I just tossed the shrimp into the pan for a quick warm up in the oil and ginger. The red pepper was the perfect amount of spice, and as the other reviewer said, the mayo made the dish. This one is going into the summer rotation! I served it with a simple spinach salad and cheese platter.
This is really a borderline 5 star recipe. Great flavor and relatively easy make. We did not feel that the amount of red pepper made it too spicy - it was just right! This is something we would definitely make again. Had a hard time deciding what side to serve with it. Settled for sauteed zucchini, squash and onion but would seek something different next time.
