Grab a shorty! Our smaller-scale sandwich is truly satisfying, especially with pickle chips and kale.
2 tablespoons low-fat buttermilk, divided
1 tablespoon canola mayonnaise
1 tablespoon water
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoons whole-grain mustard
1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
16 medium shrimp, peeled and deveined (about 3/4 pound)
1/4 cup yellow cornmeal
1 (12-ounce) French bread baguette, cut crosswise into 4 pieces
2 cups thinly sliced green leaf lettuce
8 (1/4-inch-thick) tomato slices
How to Make It
Place a baking sheet in oven. Preheat oven to 450° (leave pan in oven).
Combine 1 tablespoon buttermilk, mayonnaise, and next 4 ingredients (through pepper), stirring with a whisk. Set aside.
Combine remaining 1 tablespoon buttermilk and shrimp in a bowl; toss to coat. Sprinkle with cornmeal; toss to coat. Carefully remove preheated pan from oven. Arrange shrimp in a single layer on pan. Lightly coat shrimp with cooking spray. Bake at 450° for 8 minutes or until done.
Cut bread pieces through the top, cutting to, but not through, the bottom. Hollow out bread, leaving a 1/2-inch-thick shell. Combine 2 tablespoons mayonnaise mixture and lettuce; toss to coat. Divide lettuce mixture, tomatoes, shrimp, and remaining mayonnaise mixture among bread pieces.

Really good and super simple. Not quite the same flavor as a fried shrimp po'boy but good in it's own right. I loved the sauce made to recipe! Without the spice, the sandwich would have been too bland. Will make again.
This was a great weeknight meal, and, yes, the cayenne pepper in the sauce really woke up my tastebuds. The heat was a nice flavor substitute for frying the shrimp, so I think I might keep it the same next time because otherwise the sandwiches might be kind of bland. I served the po'boys with wilted spinach.
This was outstanding. My husband said it may be one of the best things I've ever made:) It is VERY spicy, which was fine for my husband and me but i dialed down the amount of sauce for my 10 year old. I also made the pickle chips which were alot of work but a huge hit. I'll be making this meal again and again.
This was a great dish. It was easy to make and tasted great. I like spicy dishes but the amount of red pepper was too much for me and I could not add extra sauce to the sandwich. I assume ground red pepper is the same as cayenne pepper. Next time, I will add way less. I also made the pickle chips and loved them. This is a keeper recipe for me!
