Serves 4 (serving size: 1 shrimp roll)

Buttering and toasting the rolls adds tons of rich flavor; don't be tempted to skip that step.

How to Make It

Step 1

Bring 4 cups water to a boil in a medium saucepan over high heat. Add shrimp; cook 2 minutes or until done. Drain. Rinse under cold water; drain well. Discard tail shells; coarsely chop shrimp.

Step 2

Combine mayonnaise and next 6 ingredients (through green onions) in a large bowl. Stir in shrimp; toss well to coat.

Step 3

Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Brush cut sides of each hot dog roll evenly with butter. Add rolls to pan; cook 1 minute on each side or until lightly toasted and golden. Fill each toasted roll with about 3/4 cup shrimp mixture.

Delicious with a nice kick

July 03, 2018
I love a good shrimp or lobster roll, and this one was great.  The Srirarcha aded a nice kick.  I served it with fresh corn on the cob and cole slaw.  I've attached the recipe for the coleslaw, which was also delicious!

Super easy, really good

This is an easy, weeknight meal. I broiled the hotdog buns (low, 2mins.)and they were awesome!

Spicy and Delicious

This was really good, very simple and quick.  I would suggest a bit less sriracha for anyone who doesn't like a lot of spice.  Hard to believe this is under 300 calories.  It's a keeper.

Very Easy

Spicy and quick!

I've made this a couple of times and will continue to make it during the summer. It's a very easy and light meal and so very tasty! I follow the recipe exactly except I increase the Srirarcha to 1.5 tablespoon (we like spicy food in my house). I didn't have enough hot dog buns last time so used a baguette, which made for less-soggy leftovers the next day.

Like a Lobster Roll!

June 27, 2016
These are so delectable! They really did taste like the $15 lobster rolls that I get from a restaurant. Buttering the rolls is essential. I like to add a little green onion into the mix. It's pretty versatile, you could really customize the recipe adding more celery or spice depending on your taste. For a truly decadent touch, use King's Hawaiian Rolls instead of plain hot dog buns. It kicks up the buttery rich flavor. I also found that light mayo could be used without much change in taste.

Family favorite!

Our family loves these! Occasionally, I use the remaining shrimp from a shrimp cocktail. Other times, we skewer and grill extra shrimp or pan fry--both methods yield great results. Either way, I follow the rest of the directions exactly as written. As another reviewer mentioned, buttering the rolls is critical! This is a go-to for sandwich night for us.
