Karyn Cooks: Shrimp Rolls

I recently purchased a new cookbook. If all of the recipes are as good as the first one I tried, then Cook This, Not That is going to be my new favorite. The authors take a lot of everyone's favorite restaurant meals and create a tasty, healthier version you can make at home. I decided to try the Shrimp Roll. This is a cheaper and healthier version of Uno Chicago Grill's Lobster Sliders. Pricey lobster and fatty butter are replaced with more economical shrimp and a little bit of Olive Oil Mayo. The recipe is simple and the results is amazing.
You'll Need:
1 lb cooked shrimp
2 stalks celery, diced
1/2 small red onion, diced
2 Tbsp minced chives
2 Tbsp mayonnaise
Juice of 1 lemon
1 tsp hot sauce (we like sriracha)
Salt to taste
4 hot dog buns (top-loading buns from Pepperidge Farm are best)
How to Make It:
*Mix the shrimp, celery, onion, chives, mayo, lemon juice, hot sauce, and salt together in a bowl, stirring to carefully incorporate.
*Heat a cast-iron skillet or saute pan over medium heat. Add the hot dog buns and toast until the sides are nicely browned.
*Divide the shrimp mixture among the rolls. Garnish with chopped chives, if desired.
