Spicy Shrimp Po' Boys

We all love shrimp around here, so when I saw this recipe on Annie's Eats I knew I needed to make it.  Brian loved these and so did I.  The kids liked them, but the shrimp is  very spicy, so you might want to cut back on the spice.  This really isn't a problem if you eat it like a sandwich, but if you eat your shrimp on the side like our kids do, well them you really feel the heat!
If you like spicy food and shrimp please make these.  The juicy and spicy shrimp with the cool veggies and the crunch... oh my.  This photo isn't even that good, but just looking at this sandwich and remembering the meal makes me drool!  With all the cold weather we have been having this is a great way to warm up.

Spicy Shrimp Po' Boys

Cajun Seasoning:

1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon paprika
 3/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper

Sauce: ( I eye balled most of these ingredients, so add to taste)

1/4 cup light mayonnaise
1 large pickle spear finely chopped
1 garlic clove finely chopped
Dijon mustard
prepared horseradish
1/4 teaspoon ketchup
cayenne pepper
hot sauce


1 lb. medium to large shrimp peeled and deveined
1 tablespoon olive oil
Cajun seasoning use all of the above recipe
4 sandwich rolls ( I used club rolls)
Shredded lettuce
Sliced tomato

1.  Mix together all the ingredients for the sauce in a small bowl with a spoon. Taste and adjust the seasonings as necessary.  Cover and refrigerate until you are going to use it.

2.  Combine all of the spices for the seasoning in a small bowl and set aside.

3. Toss the shrimp, olive oil and cajun seasoning in a medium bowl until thoroughly coated.

4. Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat and grill the shrimp for about two minutes per side.  Remove the shrimp from the pan and set aside.  It is easy to over cook shrimp, so don't step away while they are cooking.

5. Slice the rolls in half.    Spread some of the sauce on each slice.  Layer lettuce, shrimp, and tomato.  Top with the over half of the roll and serve immediately.

I read this on a blog the other day, I don't remember which one but I thought it might make you laugh.

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says "oh crap, she's up!"

FYI:  We have a recipe index now at the top of the page.  I hope you like it, let me know what you think.

Have a great day!
