I love a good lobster roll. But I'm cheap. So, most of the time, I love a good shrimp roll. And it's not impossible to make one healthy.
Here is a great recipe with both healthy or splurge options, and either method you choose will equal one hell of a sandwich.
In a bowl, mix two tablespoons low-fat Greek yogurt (splurge: 2 tablespoons mayo), a squirt of lemon juice, 1/2 tablespoon Old Bay seasoning, sea salt and pepper to taste, 1/8 cup green onion. Mix. Add 1 cup salad shrimp. (I found a bag of frozen, fully cooked salad shrimp at Aldi that are just 120 calories for a third of the entire bag. Not bad!) Mix.
I used a split-top kaiser sub roll that you can spray with Promise (or splurge: butter) and toast on a griddle. The toasting of the bun is essential. You want it crispy and buttery.
On the bun bottom, add thick, leafy lettuce. Spoon your shrimp salad mixture on top. Sprinkle blue cheese crumbles. (Splurge: add bacon bits.) Top with your bun top and smoosh down to fit into your mouth. : )
On the side, fresh grapes and low-cal sweet potato fries. Enjoy!

Get through it song: Thanks to the go'geous weather, didn't need one. It was Cake ... literally and figuratively. Gotta love "Fashion Nugget."
