Shrimp Po’boys!

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
  • Pickles
  • Shredded lettuce
  • Tomato
  • 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 veryquickly 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! IMG_8089 2.JPG

Easy Chopped Chicken Wedge Salad!IMG_7392 3.JPG

Ross asked me to whip him up some lunch today and he said it was delicious so I figured I would put it on here. The past few weeks I have been having salads for lunch and they’re all about the same and super tasty. My secret {or not so secret} ingredient is Bolthouse farms dressing. They are sooooo good and have the best macros ever. What you will need:

  • 1/4 cup grape tomatoes
  • 6oz  baked lemon garlic chicken breast {I will do a recipe on this}
  • 1/2 head of lettuce
  • 4 jarred pepperoncinis
  • red pepper
  • white onion
  • asparagus
  • 2 tbsp bolthouse farms salsa verde dressing

I usually chop up vegetables for the week to use in omelettes, salads, etc. So you will just dice up the red pepper, asparagus and white onion. I used about a handful for his salad. Then chop up the chicken breast into cubes, halve the grape tomatoes, and dice the pepperoncinis. Cut the head of lettuce in 1/2 and then into 1/4. This is what it will look like:
