Minty Shrimp Rolls

It has been a super hectic week for me so I have not had the chance to post in a few days. In all honesty, it's been so crazy, I have not even had the chance to cook for the last few days! Good thing I have someone to give me a hand with cooking and keeping the house together otherwise I would have even less spare time than I have now, and that would royally suck. I'm sure it's escaped no one that tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day. Somehow my Mom is working a full time job, a part-time seasonal job and managing to make Thanksgiving Dinner for my entire family. In addition to a dessert I will be bringing (I have not even decided what yet, but I'll figure that out later) I will be making this fantastic shrimp appetizer. It's easy to throw together at a minutes notice, and always goes over really well with crowds. Hope everyone has a safe & happy Thanksgiving! Don't drink and drive!!!


  • 12 ounces cooked large shrimp, tails removed (25 to 30 pieces)
  • 1/4 pound snow peas (ends removed), thinly sliced on the diagonal
  • 1 tablespoon chopped dill
  • 1 teaspoon chopped mint
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 16 small rolls
In a bowl, combine the shrimp, snow peas, dill, mint, mayonnaise and lemon juice. Mix well and season to taste with salt and pepper. Slice the center of a roll about three-quarters of the way through and fill with the shrimp mixture. Repeat with the remaining rolls.
