All You Shrimp Po' Boys
This recipe uses 18 ingredients, all of which I already had in my pantry or were easily found at my local grocery store. My husband is obsessed with hot sauces, so I had a variety to chose from and Tony Chachere's Original Creole seasoning is a stable in our house. This recipe from start to finish took approximately 45 minutes, 30 minutes of which was prep time. I prepped my shrimp earlier in the day and it took about an additional 1/2 hour. The first two or three batches of shrimp came out of the pan looking better than the last two batches. The later batches tasted great, but the flour mixture had gotten gummy so the appearance of the shrimp, wasn't as good as the earlier batches.
These Shrimp Po' Boys were very popular in my house. My two boys ate all their share and most of the leftovers later in the day. The tartar sauce gave a nice compliment to the shrimp and the overall taste of the dish was delicious. I liked that even though the shrimp were deep fried, the sandwich didn't seem greasy. This is a great kid friendly recipe.
