Shrimp Salad Roll New England Style

Nor M.


Growing up in New England I have had a lot of shrimp and lobster. This is the fairly close to the typical New England shrimp salad. The only differences. People in New England on Jenewein marinate or steam the shrimp This is the way I have made it for years. Just a few simple ingredients tossed into a buttered roll. Steaming the shrimp.In my opinion, it makes The shrimp more tender than poaching, or frying it. Enjoy!
