Shrimp Po-Boys

I had a pound of shrimp that was burning a hole in my pocket freezer this weekend, but I wasn’t quite sure how I wanted to cook it.  So, off to Google Reader I went…didn’t stay there for very long, though, because the first recipe I found was from my friend Koko at My Adventures in Food.

These po-boys immediately caught my eye and I couldn’t wait to make them!

The cajun fish fry packet I picked up was delightful.  A little spicy and had a great crunch.  Can’t wait to make these again!


1 lb large shrimp, peeled and deveined
4 egg whites, lightly beaten
1 package of Cajun fish fry (if you can’t find Cajun, plan fish fry is fine)
Oil for frying
Black pepper

French bread
Shredded lettuce
Tomato slices
Dill pickle slices
Remoulade Sauce (recipe follows)

Pat shrimp dry with paper towels. Place egg whites in a shallow dish; place fish fry mixture in another shallow dish. Dip all the seafood in the egg, and then dredge in the fish fry, coating completely. Place coated shrimp on a plate and let sit for 5 minutes while heating the oil.

Pour enough oil in a fryer or Dutch oven to reach a 2-3 inch depth. Heat to 350˚F. Fry seafood in batches for 1 minute. Remove to a paper towel lined plate. Season lightly with black pepper.

To prepare the po-boys, divide bread into sandwich-sized portions.  Slice bread open, and stuff with shrimp, lettuce, tomato, pickle and remoulade sauce.
