The first time I had a shrimp po’boy was in Louisiana visiting my now husbands family for the first time. There was actually a lot of firsts when it came to food on that trip, shrimp po’boys being one of them! Before trying it I kept thinking fried shrimp on bread sounded….interesting. Ross insisted it was delicious and he was not wrong! This weekend we went up to the cabin and I decided to try making them myself. They turned out AMAZING. Here is what you will need:
- 16 oz shrimp
- 1 packet Seafood Breading mix
- Shredded lettuce
- Peanut Oil
- 1/2 cup Mayonnaise
- 2 tbsp Tabacsco hot sauce
- 1 tbsp Cajun seasoning
- 3 tbsp Mustard
- 1tbsp onion powder
- 1tbsp minced garlic
- 1 tbsp Ketchup
- 1 tbsp lemon
You will start by adding your shrimp to a gallon bag with your packet of seafood breading.
Heat up your oil in a pan as you do this to give it time to heat up. Now you will drop the shrimp one by one. They cook very quickly about 1 minute each so make sure you don’t crowd the pan.
Once you have cooked your shrimp slice your bread. Take out some of the inside so it isn’t too bready and toast it.
For the remoulade you will combine all the above ingredients and mix. Add more spice if you would like!
Slice up your tomatoes.
Now time to assemble your sandwiches!
