'Wich of the Week: Shrimp Rémoulade Po'Boy

'Wich of the Week: Shrimp Rémoulade Po'Boy

I love a good leftover sandwich, so after whipping up shrimp rémoulade the other night, I made sure to save some shrimp and sauce for a second dinner, sandwiched inside a crispy, sweet baguette. The flavor of the rich, robust rémoulade against the flaky French bread and cool, fresh shrimp was so yummy I wish I'd made sandwiches the first time around, rather than just serving the baguette on the side.

The recipe is equally easy as a from-scratch sandwich or a leftover reinvention. As with the rémoulade recipe, you can make the sauce a day in advance and let the taste intensify over time. Though I used butter lettuce, you could also dress it with shredded iceberg or romaine. The most important thing is finding a perfectly fresh baguette (or freshening up the bread you bought the day before). To get the recipe,

There's a po-boy shop in New Orleans that serves fried green tomato and shrimp remoulade po-boys. AMAZING.

Lexichloe, I think Boston and butter lettuce are different names for the same thing.

even though i don't eat any meat/fish - i did have an appreciation for the roumelade the other day - but for some reason, i don't have the same feelings for this 'wich. oh well..at least some people are excited for it - so you scored there!

Love the idea. I'm assuming by butter lettuce you used Boston? I would love some creamy avocado to substitute the mayo.
