Po Boys are a unique sandwich from New Orleans and are wonderful to eat…. for those of us who can’t do gluten, we can still make them at home, using our Better Batter products! This version contains shrimp, lettuce, tomato and our secret Cajun sauce on a Leidenheimer bread copycat. Your mouth will do a happy dance. This recipe serves 1, and may be scaled up to feed more people.
1 6 inch length of roll from our Leidenheimer clone recipe
10 jumbo shrimp, raw, peeled, and deveined.
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 c Cajun Mayo (recipe follows)
Prepare Leidenheimer roll, slice down middle and set aside.
Dip shrimp in eggs and coat in seasoned flour. Allow to sit in flour for at least 10 minutes, to create a good crust.
Heat oil in a heavy pan or fryer ever medium high heat to 350 degrees. Shake excess flour off shrimp and fry for 2-3 minutes, or until golden brown and floating.
Smear cajun mayo on both sides of roll. Top with shrimp, tomato, and lettuce and serve immediately.
