Units Scale
  • 2 pieces of French Bread, 8 Inches in length each
  • 1216 Prepared Shrimp (See Below)
  • Lettuce
  • Tomato, Sliced
  • Remoulade Sauce (See Below)

For Shrimp:

  • 1216 deveined, tail off raw shrimp
  • 1 cup plain breadcrumbs
  • 2 eggs, beat
  • 2 tablespoon Cajun seasoning (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne powder

For Remoulade Sauce:

  • 1/2 cups mayonnaise
  • 1 garlic clove, finely diced
  • 1 Tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
  • 2 Teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 Tablespoons finely chopped parsley
  • 1/2 Tablespoons Hot Sauce (I used Frank’s)
  • 1 teaspoon capers, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoons Tamari
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon cajun seasoning
  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt


For Remoulade Sauce:

  1. Add all ingredients to a bowl and stir
  2. Let sit in fridge for at least one hour, ideally, prior to starting to cook shrimp

For Shrimp:

  1. Preheat oven to 400° Fahrenheit
  2. Add breadcrumbs to one bowl
  3. Add eggs to another bowl
  4. Dunk each shrimp into the egg wash and then place in breadcrumbs to coat
  5. Lay on baking pan
  6. Once all are coated and oven is preheated, bake the shrimp for approximately 8-12 minutes, until shrimp are pink and coating is golden brown

For po’ Boy Sandwiches:

  1. Slice bread lengthwise if needed to give it a sandwich shape
  2. If you like your sandwiches toasted, toast bread in oven for a few minutes. I add it to the oven for 4 minutes while the shrimp is baking
  3. Add lettuce, tomato, and shrimp
  4. Top with Remoulade sauce
  5. Serve


  • Deep-Fried Shrimp would also work well for this recipe. This baked recipe, however, is 100% delicious and cuts back on the calories.
  • The bread you use matters. Find French bread you like and use that.
  • For a vegetarian recipe, use extra firm tofu and bread it like you would the shrimp.
