Creamy Pesto Shrimp Rolls

I love shrimp. Heck, I love seafood period! So when I saw shrimp on sale at the store I grabbed a couple bags and set my mind to plan a couple nice "Summer" type dishes. Should I grill them? Should I make a salad (which I will be doing so keep an eye out for that post!)? Oh, I have it, Kevin loves sandwiches so lets do that. I wasn't sure how he would feel about the shrimp OR the pesto. He has been kind of iffy on pesto but come around much more since I started making my own.

He kind of hung over my shoulder while I was making them, and I was wondering if I was going to get any complaints, but he is used to me subbing Greek yogurt for everything now and as soon as he saw my homemade pesto he actually seemed excited. Who knew?

I have to say that I am in love with these sandwiches! They are creamy, crunchy, and sweet. Now I am hooked and craving all kinds of seafood! I am sad that Kevin isn't working where he was last year because some of the customers used to bring him fresh crab they had just caught. That was what I made my Crab Salad Sammies, and Crab Stuffed Mushrooms with. I guess I will just have to throw a crab pot out there and see what happens right?
