Shrimp sliders boast tasty sauce

By
Published:

Shrimp sauteed in garlicky butter fills these little mini burger rolls. A sauce of mayonnaise, mustard, scallions and some Old Bay seasoning is spread on the rolls. Old Bay is a blend of herbs and spices, usually celery salt, red and black pepper and paprika. It’s mostly used to season shellfish.

For the Quick Potato Salad, I doctored up deli potato salad with some sliced carrots and chopped chives.

Helpful Hints:

  • You can substitute Old Bay seasoning with some paprika, salt and pepper.
  • You can use any type of lettuce.
  • Buy peeled and deveined shrimp.

Shrimp Sliders

Yield 2 servings. Recipe by Linda Gassenheimer

1/4 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise

2 scallions, thinly sliced or chopped

2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

4 whole wheat slider (mini hamburger) rolls

1 tablespoon butter

3 sliced garlic cloves

3/4 pound peeled and deveined shrimp

2 teaspoons Old Bay seasoning

4 lettuce leaves

Mix the mayonnaise, scallions and mustard together in a small bowl and set aside. Open the slider rolls and toast them in a toaster oven or under the broiler. Place 2 rolls each on two dinner plates next to the potato salad. Heat the butter and garlic in a medium size nonstick skillet for 1 minute. Add the shrimp and saute 3 minutes or until they turn pink. Sprinkle with the Old Bay seasoning. Place a lettuce leaf on the bottom half of the slider rolls. Divide the shrimp into 4 portions and place on the lettuce leaves. Spread the mayonnaise mixture on the top half of the buns and place them on the shrimp.
