Shrimp rolls are an easier, yet equally luxurious, alternative to the classic Lobster Roll. Particularly popular in the northeastern United States, these rolls capture the essence of coastal cuisine. Plus, with our easy-to-follow recipe, you'll be impressing your guests in no time!
How Do These Rolls Taste?
Imagine a buttery brioche bun cradling a mix of tender, succulent shrimp that's been seasoned to perfection. Enhanced with hints of fresh lemon juice and a dash of hot sauce, the shrimp offer a burst of flavor with every bite. The richness of mayonnaise and the crunchiness of fresh vegetables add layers of texture and flavor that make each mouthful a delight.
Where Our Shrimp Comes From
We source our shrimp from the Gulf, known for its rich, biodiverse aquatic life. Our Sizzlefish wild Gulf shrimp are ethically caught, ensuring both premium quality and sustainability. These shrimp offer a delicate yet robust flavor, making them an ideal choice for our shrimp rolls.
Shrimp are not just delicious; they're also rich in essential nutrients. They provide a healthy dose of protein and are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, which are known for their heart health benefits. Shrimp also contain important minerals like iodine and offer a good source of vitamins like B12.
The Luxurious Brioche Bun
Ever wonder why brioche buns elevate any sandwich? It's all in the rich, buttery texture and subtle sweetness. Brioche is a French bread enriched with butter and eggs, resulting in a luxurious feel that complements the shrimp's delicate texture perfectly.
