Can I Make a "Grilled Shrimp Po' Boy"?
This is a healthy twist on a Louisiana classic, which seemed perfect for Mardi Gras or maybe more appropriately for during Lent since it's healthier, haha. :) It's from the Neelys from the Food Network.
I didn't use the grill. I just put a grate over a pan and baked them in the oven to simulate a grill.
I made a smaller batch than the full recipe, so I used less than the ingredients listed here. I didn't have any Worcestershire sauce. I also didn't make the mayo or butter sauce. I just used a little sour cream for a creamy topping.
1 1/2 pounds large shrimp, peeled and deveined
2/3 cup olive oil
4 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed
2 lemons, juiced
2 teaspoons smoked paprika
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons hot sauce
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 French baguette, sliced lengthwise in 1/2
Butter Sauce, recipe follows
Sweet Pickle Mayonnaise, recipe follows
Shredded lettuce, for serving
Sliced tomato, for serving
It's pretty easy actually. You just put all the ingredients together and let the shrimp marinate in it.
Then I put them in the oven with the bread at 350 degrees for ~10 m in. or so. Here it is coming out of the oven.
RESULT: Success! :)
We are good at this! It's a healthier and easier way to make a po' boy actually. There's no breading which makes it easier. You just marinate the shrimp and grill or bake them. It tastes good too!
Give it a try! We are good at this!
