Shrimp Rolls

I need to catch up with my food entry , there are so many food items that needed to be uploaded . So , here is shrimp roll , i believe you can always replace the shrimp to a fancier entry such as lobster meat . It tasted just fine when i used the shrimps for it , in fact it was quite good . This recipe can be considered a healthy food recipe . I used greek yogurt for the majority instead of mayonaisse . You can serve this in a hot dog roll , or sub roll or even toasted wheat bread , whatever your choice will be fine .

Ingredients : 

1 lb of large shrimp ( you can buy the cooked shrimp , but i prefer to buy it fresh or frozen shrimp and then cook it myself )

1/2 cup of plain greek yogurt

3 tbsp. of mayonaisse

1 stalk celery , chopped

2 green onions , chopped

pinch of smoked paprika

salt ,  pepper

1 tbsp. of lemon juice

hot dog buns or bread

1. If you buy cooked shrimp , then you can skip this step . For fresh shrimp , peel the shrimps and clean the shrimps , then bring water to boil , once it comes to boil , drop the shrimps in , for 60-75 seconds  , the shrimps cook very fast ,  you don’t want to overcook it or it will be so chewy . Once it turns orange everywhere , you should bring them out from the pot , and rinse it with cold water for few seconds to stop the cooking . Set aside .

2. In a medium bowl , mix the mayonaisse , greek yogurt and celery , green onion , paprika , salt and pepper and lemon juice , mix to combine . Add the cooked shrimps in , mix well . Then place in the refrigerator at least few hours .

3. To serve , brush with olive oil on inside the buns and grill or place on a skillet for few minutes . Add the shrimps and serve .
