Lemon– Citrus adds a nice pop of acid to any shellfish.

Smoked Paprika– This variety of paprika will add a rich smokiness to the shrimp.

Steps For Making Warm Buttered Shrimp Rolls

Prepare the oven and vegetables

Ready the oven by setting a rack in the highest position, then preheat the oven to 425°F or 220°C. Next, wash and dry all products required for the recipe. Cut the cleaned potatoes into wedges. Zest the lemon and set the zest aside, then slice the zested lemon in half. Slice the scallions thinly, and be sure to separate the whites from the greens.

Roast the potatoes

Potata Wedges

Toss the potatoes in olive oil, half the paprika, half the garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Arrange the potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet. Roast the potatoes in the prepared oven until brown and tender, this will take about 20-25 minutes.

Make the slaw

In a medium bowl, mix mayonnaise, sour cream, the juice of half the lemon, half the celery salt, and a little sugar. Add in the cabbage and scallion greens, and toss together until the cabbage is coated in dressing. Season generously with salt and pepper, then set aside.

Prepare the rolls

In a small microwave-safe bowl, melt a small amount of butter. Slice the rolls lengthwise, do not cut through the roll. Brush the melted butter onto the newly cut sides of the bread, then arrange the rolls, with their buttered sides up, on a baking sheet; toast the rolls until golden brown, this only takes about two to three minutes.

Cook the shrimp

Wash and dry the shrimp. Toss the shrimp in a medium bowl with a large helping of olive oil, and season with the rest of the spices. Preheat a pan with olive oil, then add the shrimp and the scallion, only the whites. Heat and stir the shrimp until they are thoroughly cooked, this will take about three to four minutes. Quickly turn off the heat and stir butter and lemon. Add as much lemon as desired.

Dress the sandwiches

Fill the buttered roll with shrimp, then cover with the delicious slaw. To add some spice, drizzle with hot sauce. Serve the potato wedges alongside the shrimp roll, and garnish the plate with a lemon wedge.
