What do you do when you come across a recipe that is not really for the “season” you are in? I really tried hard this year to post about all of the seasonal recipes that I made in the season you are supposed to eat them in. Last year, December rolled around and I realized I hadn’t posted a strawberry rhubarb jam I made. I felt silly posting it in December, but I felt like I had to for part of my Cookbook Project. So really – I tried really hard this year. And I thought I was doing really well. Until I was going through pictures today, deciding what to post, and not only found these Summer Shrimp Rolls, but also a lovely cake that I made with nectarines. What to do?? I could have just pushed them aside, either not posting about them or waiting until next summer. But they were both so good that I just have to post them! I guess you could always bookmark them for next summer. And hey – it’s almost summer in Australia!! (And don’t worry – I’ll be posting the cake recipe soon as well!)

Summer Shrimp Rolls
from Every Day With Rachael Ray June/July 2009

Serves 4

1 1/2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
1 pound large shrimp – peeled, deveined and chopped
3/4 cup fresh corn kernels (from about 2 ears)
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup pesto
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 red bell pepper, cut into 1/2″ cubes
3 scallions, thinly sliced
salt and pepper
4 hot dog buns

In a medium skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp and cook, stirring, until opaque, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in the corn and let cool.

In a medium bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, pesto and lemon juice. Add the shrimp-corn mixture, bell pepper and scallions; toss. Season with salt and pepper. Serve in the hot dog buns.

    Hey, this looks good to me any time of the year! I was surprised to see corn in there … I bet it adds a wonderful sweet crunch to the sammie. Living in Oregon, I can get shrimp year round, so this is a keeper! :-)

    Sometimes, in the middle of winter, you need a taste of summer. I could eat this any time of year!

    I had marked this recipe as well – I am glad to hear you liked it!

    I've been known to eat off-season foods at random times. I'm all about keeping an eclectic menu! This would be perfect to make right between the holidays, when we're eating heavy stuff. The cake sounds like it'd be a great dessert, too!
