The best kind of shrimp rolls are the ones that heave under the weight of shrimp. Think about half a pound per roll and multiply by the people your making them for. The rest can be done by sight and taste. When adding the mayo start with a heaping spoonful, stir, and add more depending on your preference. Add Tabasco, tarragon, lemon or other herbs by taste.
