The lobster roll gets a lot of attention when it comes to seafood sandwiches. I mean who doesn't love a lobster roll. But to be honest lobster meat isn't cheap. And I feel sometimes like I am just not willing to splurge on lobster. So I think shrimp makes an awesome substitute and are really tasty as well.
Any good roll sandwich lobster or otherwise is really only as good as the bun. To take that bun to another level butter is really the key.
So get some soft buns New England style rolls with open sides and melt some butter, chop some shrimp and have some deliciousness.
