Today is the day to celebrate all things Louisiana! As a former resident of the state of Louisiana, I'd like to share a deliciously easy recipe for a New Orleans staple: The Shrimp Po'Boy. The sandwich is traditionally stuffed with fried shrimp, but this version is fresh and flavorful and keeps it on the lighter side...
You'll need -
Loaf of fresh French bread (Publix does a nice job with theirs)
1 lb Fresh shrimp (peeled and deveined)
Olive oil spray (like Pam)
Dill pickle slices
Preheat oven to 350. Slice bread into 6 servings and then slice in half, leaving one side unsliced (so it opens like a book). Lightly spray the inside of the bread with olive oil and place on a cookie sheet in the oven for about 4 minutes to toast. While your bread is toasting, toss shrimp with salt, pepper, garlic, parsley and cajun spice and add to a hot skillet. Squeeze a lemon over the shrimp and cook to a pretty pink.
