Heaven on Seven Grilled Shrimp Po' Boy Sandwich

Remoulade Sauce Ingredients:

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsp Creole mustard
  • 2 Tbsp ketchup
  • 2 Tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped green onions
  • 1/4 cup small capers
  • 1 tsp chopped garlic
  • 1 tsp hot pepper sauce

Sandwiches Ingredients:

  • 12 large shrimp, shelled and deveined
  • 6 Tbsp olive oil (divided)
  • 2 tsp Creole spice mix
  • 1 loaf Cuban bread *
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and cut in half
  • Shredded iceberg lettuce


1 large ripe tomato, sliced thin

To make sauce: In a medium bowl, blend mayonnaise, mustard, ketchup, parsley, green onions, capers, chopped garlic and hot pepper sauce.

To make sandwiches: In a large bowl, coat the shrimp with 2 tablespoons olive oil and the Creole spice. Grill or broil the shrimp, turning once, until cooked through, about 3 minutes.

Cut loaf vertically into four 6-inch pieces, then cut each piece horizontally not quite all the way through. If desired, pull out some of the bread and discard. Brush the inside of each piece with the remaining 4 tablespoons oil and rub the oil-coated bread with garlic halves. Toast the bread until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Let the bread cool slightly, then layer lettuce, tomato and shrimp on each piece. Top with Remoulade Sauce and close sandwiches, or pass it in a sauceboat at the table.

NOTE: If Cuban bread isn't available, use French bread.
