Shrimp Po Boy



  My husband had his first shrimp po' boy while stationed in Louisiana.  They were so good that we went searching for a recipe to make them at home.  The heart of the recipe is the spicy remoulade sauce.  I am not a fan of horseradish so I just omitted it.  These were a snap to make and delicious with the perfect amount of a kick!



       Ingredients
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup milk 
  • 1 1/2 pounds large shrimp, deveined
  • Salt
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 cup cornmeal or bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons Tony Chachere's Famous Creole Seasoning
  • 4 soft hoagie rolls split
  • tomato, sliced
  • lettuce
  • mayonnaise
  • hot sauce

     
     Directions

  Preheat 1-inch of oil in a deep skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Beat egg and milk together. Pull tails off shrimp. Salt shrimp then soak in milk batter. Before you begin breading the shrimp, cover a plate with plastic wrap for easy clean up then mix together the flour, cornmeal or bread crumbs and seasoning on the plate. Using tongs, remove a few shrimp at a time and coat in breading. Add breaded shrimp to the hot oil and fry them 5 to 6 minutes or until firm and deeply golden all over. Using a spatula, spread the mayonnaise on both sides of the bread.  Pile lettuce and tomato on rolls and top with shrimp, douse the shrimp with a little hot sauce.

AND people out here just seem to be afraid of spices!! EVEN the Mexican restaurants out here taste like retirement home white people food!! It's OK I can make fun of white people....I'm half white!! HAHAH!

  23. I remember I had one about three years ago when I went to NOLA.
    I think mine was too spicy. Something just wasn't right.
    I am going to try to use your recipe and see what happens.
