How to Make It
Place a jelly-roll pan in oven. Preheat oven to 450° (leave pan in oven).
Combine first 7 ingredients in a small bowl, stirring well. Chill until ready to use.
Combine okra and 2 tablespoons buttermilk; toss to coat. Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt; toss to coat.
Place shrimp in a medium bowl. Sprinkle with flour; toss well to coat. Drizzle with remaining 6 tablespoons buttermilk, and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt; toss to coat. Drain okra and shrimp through a sieve; discard liquid.
Combine cornmeal and Cajun/Creole seasoning in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add okra and shrimp; seal bag, and shake well to coat.
Carefully remove pan from oven; drizzle with oil, tilting pan to spread oil. Remove shrimp and okra from cornmeal, shaking off excess; arrange in a single layer on pan. Bake at 450° for 5 minutes; carefully stir and turn over. Bake 4 minutes or until done.
Spread about 1 tablespoon rémoulade on one side of hot dog buns; divide lettuce and tomato evenly among buns. Divide shrimp mixture evenly among buns.

Good crisp on the shrimp and okra. Nice flavor and textures together; I don't care for unsalted creole seasoning so, I just added onion/garlic powders and ground red pepper to my cornmeal. The sauce was delicious. Fairly easy to put together, albeit, it was a bit of a pain having to take each piece of shrimp and okra one by one and put on the pan and the turn each piece over 1/2 way through baking, but finished product was worth it ;-).
Had to post this as the previous review makes absolutely no sense! Must be something else Valery is referring to as offensive. It sounds great and I would hate to pass it by due to a senseless low rating.
I have not tried it and won't The title is very offensive. We have had several deaths in construction zones in this state. Really, who came up with using construction zones and killer ahead in the same sentence. Only gave it a 1 star rating to be able to post,.
