Unbelievable shrimp/lobster roll

    I recently had the best lobster roll of my life, and then by some miracle, found the recipe online :D This works with both lobster chunks, crab chunks, or shrimp.

    First, the spices. You want each of these in equal measurements (1/4 tsp each = 4 servings).

    Black Pepper

    Celery Salt

    Garlic Salt

    Thyme

    Oregano

    Then, the butter. Melt one stick of butter down, and brush the sides of four split hotdog buns, like these:

    Once buttered, stick them on the grill to toast them up. Take the remaining butter and squeeze a quarter of a lemon in it.

    Once you have the buns toasted, spread a thin amount of mayo (trust me, a lot isn't needed here) on the inside of the bun. Put your lobster/crab/shrimp in the bun, and drizzle the butter over it. Dust with the spices (again, not much is needed here).

    These are the BEST lobster and shrimp rolls I've ever had. I go to bed dreaming about these! Ok, not really, but they are seriously damn good. I prefer the lobster, of course, but the shrimp is damn tasty.

  9. A little rubbery...probably wont smoke again unless I get bigger shrimp.  BUT I did enjoy the rub...making some carb/shrimp rolls mix for this weeks lunch  :)

  11. Made this again with just imitation crab and pre-cooked shrimp you buy at the store.  I made it more like a chicken salad style with the amount of mayo I used with the measurements you suggest.  Boy it is good.  My only complaint with your recipe it just says "1/4..." for everything...and 4 servings.  That does not really tell me how much meat I need  :) - SO I just guess and if the seasoning is too strong I had more lite mayo...maybe not what you had in mind but it is good.  :)

    The recipe says that amount for 3 lbs of shrimp, but I think it's best to just sprinkle it on to suit your taste
