A New Orleans specialty, this sandwich is often made with deep-fried shrimp. Oven-frying the shrimp, which are coated in garlicky breadcrumbs, delivers big flavor without the fat.
3 tablespoons dry breadcrumbs
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/4 cup ketchup
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon hot sauce
2 (10-inch) submarine rolls, split
2 cups torn curly leaf lettuce
1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
How to Make It
Line a baking sheet with heavy-duty aluminum foil. Combine breadcrumbs, salt, pepper, and garlic in a medium bowl, stirring with a fork. Combine oil and shrimp; toss well. Place half of the shrimp in the breadcrumb mixture; toss well to coat. Place breaded shrimp in a single layer on prepared baking sheet. Repeat procedure with remaining shrimp and breadcrumb mixture. Broil 4 minutes or until shrimp are done.
Combine ketchup, juice, Worcestershire, chili powder, and hot sauce in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk.
Spread 2 tablespoons ketchup mixture over cut sides of each roll half. Place 1 cup lettuce over bottom half of each roll; top with 1/4 cup onion. Arrange 1 cup shrimp on each roll half; top with remaining roll half. Cut sandwiches in half.
Recipe was ok. The bread crumbs really didn't stick to the shrimp for me, and burnt when i broiled them. I thought the red onion was also overpowering. Next time I would omit the onion. I liked the ketchup though, and will give this a second try with maybe just broiled shrimp.
This is a very Po'Boy. I used 14C shrimp fried in olive oil using the bread crumbs. I added 2tbl mayo to the katchup sauce. French Bread sliced in half with some of the bread removed the grilled with butter. Romain with red onion. It was a huge hit. Will make again.
This is a great weeknight dinner. I used garlic powder instead of minced garlic and panko breadcrumbs. I also added some more hot sauce to the katchup for more spiciness- a lite summer meal that I served with a salad.
This recipe has been added to our regular rotation. The only change I make is to use garlic powder instead of the minced garlic. My husband and son love these sandwiches. The sauce has just the right kick.
This was soooo good, my hubby says this is his new fave meal! I love the fact that this was low fat, i made it with the corn salad, so we really felt like we were at Mardi Gra! All i needed was some beads.......lol
