The first time my husband and I travelled to New Orleans, we stumbled across a little place called Johnny’s Po-Boys. There’s an endless list of po-boys to choose from there but I tried their Fried Shrimp Po-Boy and it was instant love. After we got home, my husband set out to make the best po-boy he could outside of Johnny’s and his are outstanding.
Over the years though I’ve grown to like fried food a little less and so one day he sauteed my shrimp instead. And it was fabulous! Sauteed Shrimp Po-Boys are my favorite. I think they are so much better than the fried ones. If you love shrimp like I do, you’ll love these too!
1 lb. peeled, deveined shrimp, 26-30 ct.
Cajun Shake seasoning
1 T. Olive Oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place french bread, wrapped in aluminum foil in oven to warm.
Heat olive oil in skillet over medium high heat.
Sprinkle shrimp generously with Cajun Shake and saute in olive oil until they are pink and no longer translucent.
Cut french bread into individual, sandwich size portions and slice in half lengthwise.
Add desired amount of mayonnaise, lettuce & tomato to top half of bread.
Place shrimp on bottom half of bread and top with cocktail sauce if desired.
We love this with some delicious red potato salad on the side.
