Cajun Shrimp Rolls

I love a good sandwich in the spring and summer. They are super easy to do and don’t take away from my outside time! One of the best sandwiches for warmer weather is a good old shrimp roll. In this recipe I go for a bolder flavor than the basic New England style shrimp roll (which is also super delicious!).

Equally important in this recipe is the type of bread that you use. Nothing beats a top-split, toasted, buttery roll paired with this shrimp salad mixture. Also, the top-split rolls makes the sandwich easier to devour…yummy!

Watch me make this recipe from start to finish!
