Lobster rolls are one of America’s greatest food inventions. They’re also one of Americans’ favorite indulgences during the Summer. (In fact, find out which state it ranks for in The Best Summer Food in Every State.)
The main problem that comes with eating Maine lobster? Lobster meat is pricey, and restaurants too often drown the fresh lobster flavor with an abundance of melted butter.
To solve this eating dilemma, this recipe subs in ultra-lean, protein-packed, easy-to-find-in-stores shrimp — one of nature’s lowest calorie sources of fat-burning, belly-filling protein — for the lobster. And in place of all that butter, we bring out the best with Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise, a brand that’s committed to using real ingredients like cage-free eggs and responsibly sourced oils from Iowa family farms. One serving contains 40 percent of your daily value for omega-3 ALA.
