Tonight’s dinner goes back to my Southern girl roots. Being brought up in Texas near the Gulf of Mexico we always had lots of shrimp. I started out with a 2 lb. bag of jumbo, frozen, raw, deveined and easy-peel shrimp. They were even on sale so I stocked up a few more bags in the garage freezer.
The recipe I used is HERE.
I skipped the part about using egg and panko because I didn’t have any. I added a package of Italian seasoning mix to the flour in addition to the cajun seasoning. You can use Old Bay if you don’t have anything else. So, pretty much just the flour mixture and then fried.
I didn’t use the homemade remoulade sauce listed with the recipe. I sort of took bits and pieces from various recipes and reviewers and came up with this:
- 1/2 cup Marie’s Thousand Island dressing
- hot sauce to taste
- 2 tsp soy sauce
- squirt from lime juice container.
It came pretty darn close to tasting like the real from-scratch recipes.
- First I combined 4 TBL of butter with 1 tsp of minced garlic and melted in microwave.
- Next I buttered a roll and toasted it.
- Meanwhile, I coated the shrimp and fried them up.
- Next, I put shredded lettuce and tomato slices on the toasted roll and then put on the cooked shrimp.
- Finally, I drizzled with the remoulade sauce.
YUMMY… so good. My kids said it was fantastic.
