About This Recipe:
Like every East coast girl in the summer, I LOVE enjoying a lobster roll by the water. I wish I could also make them at home, but I just can’t imagine cooking a whole live lobster, and then disassembling it to get the meat out. So an easy shrimp salad roll is a great alternative that is still summery and delicious, but way more accessible. My favorite add ins are red onion, celery, and dill, but you could also use red bell pepper, cucumber, parsley, etc. If you can find brioche hot dog buns, I highly recommend it because it gives this dish a very restaurant quality touch.
