SHORTCUT SHRIMP PO’BOY SANDWICHES — With the help of frozen, breaded shrimp and an easy homemade remoulade sauce, you can whip up these delicious sandwiches in no time.
Living in the West, this isn’t the kind of sandwich that’s served often in local restaurants, so when the craving strikes, I usually end up making these savory shrimp sandwiches at home.
Of course, the most difficult, time-consuming part of making a shrimp po’boy is frying the shrimp. And that’s where the shortcut come in!
To save time–and the mess of frying food in my home kitchen–I just use breaded frozen shrimp from my supermarket’s freezer aisle. Easy peasy!
My entire family loves these sandwiches, even the ones who say they don’t like shrimp. There’s just something about the combination of ingredients that is so satisfying.
One of the most important components of a good shrimp po’boy is the remoulade sauce. It’s not something that’s usually available pre-made in the grocery store here, so I always make my own.
Don’t worry, it’s a super simple sauce that comes together in minutes. And it’s great for so many things, like burgers, or as a dipping sauce for French fries.
Toasting your sandwich buns may seem like an unnecessary extra step, but trust me, it’s a must! Crusty bread is a big part of the whole shrimp po’boy experience.
Fun fact: po’boy sandwiches originated in New Orleans at the Martin Brothers’ French Market Restaurant and Coffee Stand during the 1929 streetcar strike.
You’ll definitely be glad these Shortcut Shrimp Po’Boy Sandwiches are still around today for your enjoyment. I hope you love them as much as we do.
