Spicy Shrimp Roll

Enjoy this fresh Spicy Shrimp Roll with a frosty drink on a warm spring day.  This sandwich is easy and inexpensive to make.  I’m calling it the poor man’s lobster roll . . . all of that great flavor at half the cost!

I’m lucky enough to be participating in the #ShrimpShowdown , hosted by OXO and The Shrimp Council.

When I received six awesome OXO tools and 5 lbs of Eastern Fish Company Shrimp delivered to my doorstep, I did a happy shrimp dance. {I’ll let you imagine what a happy shrimp dance looks like}  Check out the ($180 value) giveaway below for a chance to do your Happy Dance!


I love OXO gadgets and I love shrimp!

Deciding what recipe to make was the difficult part.  The possibilities, the possibilities.

I made this Spicy Shrimp Roll and Shrimp Scampi Pasta {coming soon}.  Both meals were delicious.  But, this Spicy Shrimp Roll was my favorite.

My daughter and I set up a lawn picnic to enjoy these tasty sandwiches.  It is a great spring or summertime meal.

This Spicy Shrimp Roll is light and flavorful.  It is also super easy to make.  Especially with the help of the OXO gadgets!

I used the OXO Shrimp Cleaner, Flexible Herb Snips, Handheld Mandoline Slicer and the 3 Piece Bowl/Colander Set.

The shrimp cleaner makes preparation a breeze!  Simply insert the cleaner into the shrimp to remove the shell and vein in one motion.

My favorite gadget is the 3 piece bowl/colander set, pictured below.  I expect to get a lot of use out of that kitchen tool!

The shrimp that I received from Eastern Fish Company {& The Shrimp Council} were massive!  Shrimp-Zilla!

These giant shrimp were perfect for this sandwich.   Fresh meaty shrimp mixed with mayo, celery, sriracha, lemon, parsley and dill.  Fill a soft roll with the shrimp for the Ultimate Spicy Shrimp Roll!
