    These were really good. Husband said they were really easy to make, and they came together fast.

    Excellent and very easy. The tarter sauce could easily be used with other recipes.

    This was a great sandwich and we will definitely be having it again. It went together fairly quickly. I prepped all the sandwich fixings first, then the tartar sauce, then I peeled and deveined the shrimp and cooked them. While the shrimp were searing, I started to assemble the sandwiches. The cajun seasoned shrimp was great, but the tartar sauce was fantastic. I'll be using it whenever I need a tartar sauce. The only change I made was to the tartar sauce, using green tabasco instead of red, since I was worried about the amount of heat for my kids. We served it with garden yellow beans.

    Outstanding! Used fat free mayo to lighten up the sandwiches, and round sourdough rolls. Fantastic!

    These are great! Served it on whole wheat hoagie rolls. The shrimp by themself are pretty spicy (at least with the Cajun seasoning I use which I make myself) but is perfect with the tartar sauce.

    Great dish, and super easy to make. Yum! The cole slaw was light and refreshing too.

    Absolutely delicious! A worthwhile substitute until I can get back to New Orleans!

    Great Recipe. But if you like spicy I used 10 times the amount of tabasco and added a few drops of Valentina sauce. I also used regular dill instead of sweet for the pickle relish and I did not have capers. Turned out great. If you like I toasted the bread in the oven to make the sandwich warm and slightly crunchy. Just like they serve it in Louisiana.

    Made this for dinner last night. Amazing, could have eaten more than one sandwich. We also added butter and cajun seasoning to the bread and toasted it. I also made a double recipe of the tartar sauce, wonderful sauce. Will for sure be making this again! Can't wait!

    I loved the taste added some chipotle chiles instead of tabasco sauce.

    Everyone in my house ate this, from my ten year old to my son-in-law! Great dinner! Served with BBQ coleslaw, I had no leftovers for lunch the next day!

    These were delish but very, very messy! Fell apart while eating, but worth it!

    Ok, my teenage hates shrimp so I substituted tilapia fillets. Still delish. Still messy. Served with a Cooking Light coleslaw and watermelon wedges. Very filling.

    Awesome recipe. The only thing I changed is I used fat free Greek yogurt in place of the mayo to make it healthier, and I added a touch of horseradish. Very simple to make. I had leftover shrimp and put them on corn tortillas with avocado and salsa. The shrimp is versatile and can be used on salad, as well.

    Awesome!!! So simple and I was able to make just enough for 2.

    Skipped the red onion, as I don't ever remember having it on a Po Boys anywhere in NO. And I had some garlic lime mayo made up from another recipe to use up so I used that instead of making the tartar sauce. Must say it was a spectacular addition to an already great sandwich, svn though it was not authentic! My husband liked it better than the traditional fried shrimp version! This is a winner!
