4 sandwiches

This New Orleans style sandwich layers fried shrimp with lettuce, tomato, and mayo or remoulade sauce.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine the all-purpose flour, salt, and pepper in a shallow bowl or plate. Lightly beat the egg in a small bowl.

Step 2

Pour oil to a depth of about 1-inch in a deep skillet, sauté pan, or Dutch oven. Place over medium-high heat.

Step 3

Using one hand to handle the food, dredge the shrimp through the egg, shaking off any extra. Then dredge them through the flour mixture.

Step 4

When the oil reaches 365°, add the shrimp, using a metal slotted spoon, and fry until golden brown all over, about 1 1/2 minutes on each side. Do not crowd the skillet. As they are done, transfer the shrimp to paper towels to drain.

Step 5

Split the French bread down the length and spread the bottom with mayonaise or remoulade sauce, then line them with lettuce and tomato.

Step 6

When all the shrimp have been fried, add them to the sandwiches and serve immediately.

These Po' Boy's are something how I make mine. I use the prebreaded the small shrimp, and add sliced onions and hot sace to them. They are so yummy this way.
