Magazine Monday #40: Blackened Shrimp Po'Boys



Blackened Shrimp Po'Boys
Serves 4

Ingredients


1/3 cup mayonnaise
2 Tbsp. diced pickles, plus more for serving
2 Tbsp. minced shallots
1/2 tsp. Louisiana-style hot sauce
Salt & pepper to taste
1 lb. large shrimp, peeled & deveined
2 tsp. Cajun seasoning
2 tbsp. unsalted butter
4 hero rolls, split
Shredded lettuce & sliced tomatoes for serving

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Mix the mayo, diced pickles, shallot, and hot sauce in a small bowl, season with salt and pepper to taste, and set aside.

Arrange the rolls on a baking sheet and toast in the oven for about 5 minutes.  

While the rolls are baking, toss together the shrimp and Cajun seasoning and a pinch of salt in a large bowl.  Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat, then add the shrimp and cook until pink, 3-4 minutes.

Spread the mayo mixture on the cut sides of the rolls, fill with shrimp, lettuce, and tomatoes, and serve with pickles on the side.
