  • 1/4 cup loosely packed parsley leaves, chopped
  • Juice of 1 large lemon (about 3 tablespoons)
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup chili sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined, tails removed
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 8 slices potato bread
  • 1 red bell pepper, stemmed, seeded and very thinly sliced
  • 2 celery stalks, peeled and cut into very thin matchsticks
  • 1/2 small red onion, very thinly sliced


Step 1

Combine the peppers, celery, onion, parsley, 1 tablespoon lemon juice and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl. Let sit for 30 minutes to marinate and soften.

Step 2

Whisk together the chili sauce, Worcestershire, the remaining lemon juice, hot sauce, oregano, paprika, onion powder and garlic powder in a small bowl; set aside.

Step 3

Pat the shrimp dry on a plate, and season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of black pepper. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat, then add the shrimp. Cook until they turn pink on the bottom, about 2 minutes, then flip and cook until they are totally pink and start to curl, about 2 minutes more; transfer the shrimp to a clean plate. Add the chili-sauce mixture to the skillet, and simmer until it is reduced and thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat to cool.

Step 4

Roughly chop the shrimp, add to the cooled sauce and stir to combine. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

Step 5

Put a slice of bread between 2 pieces of plastic wrap, and roll with a rolling pin to flatten. Spread a heaping teaspoon of mayonnaise over the bread. Arrange 2 tablespoons of the BBQ shrimp in a neat row along the bottom edge of the bread. Top with some of the vegetable mixture. Use the plastic wrap to help roll the bread up into a tight cylinder. Wrap it tightly in a fresh piece of plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours and up to overnight. Repeat with the remaining ingredients to make 8 roll-ups total.

Step 6

When you're ready to serve, unwrap the roll-ups, cut each into 4 pieces.
