Dinner Tonight: Shrimp and Deviled-Egg Salad Rolls

I like lobster rolls as much as the next guy, but I also live in the Midwest, where they are rare and usually stupendously expensive. I'm just not in the business of throwing down $20 for what amounts to a sandwich more than once a year. While not as ethereal as a perfect lobster roll, these shrimp and deviled-egg salad rolls from The Lee Bros. Simple Fresh Southern might be the perfect low-brow alternative for someone like me.

This is essentially just a great deviled-egg salad, which gets a kick from a healthy helping of hot sauce and Dijon mustard. The chopped shrimp help balance the mixture out, adding some much needed sweetness and contrasting texture. The salad is great on its own, but becomes truly tasty when it is stuffed into a hot dog bun along with crisp lettuce and sliced tomatoes.
