I was dog sitting for a friend of my mother-in-law the other day and I was reading her Gourmet Magazine. I found a recipe for Lobster Rolls with Lemon Vinaigrette and Garlic Butter and thought it would be tasty with shrimp instead. I modified the recipe quite a bit but it still came out awesome.
1 pound shrimp (for 4 people)
3 Tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
4 sliced scallions
3 ribs thinly sliced celery with leaves
Handful of flat parsley leaves, chopped
4-5 garlic cloves, pressed
2 tbsp butter
Hot dog buns (however many people you have)
Peel and devein the shrimp. Mix in a small bowl with a tablespoon or so of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and 2 cloves of garlic pressed. Set them aside.
In a bowl, whisk together the lemon juice and olive oil until it emulsifies. Whisk in the scallions, celery and parsley. Saute the shrimp in a skillet until cooked through (about 3 minutes per side) Add the shrimp to the dressing and mix together. Combine 2 tbsp butter with 2 cloves of pressed garlic. Spread on the hot dog buns and toast until lightly browned. Place shrimp mixture on top of the bun and serve! I served mine with fries.
This dish was really fantastic and super simple to make!
