1
if your going to make your own remoulade, mix mustard mayo,pickle juice,hot sauce,garlic,paprika and cajun seasoning all together in a bowel and set aside while cooking, it will be better with time.
2
pour enough peanut oil in a large frying pan to come up about a 1/4 inch, and set pan over medium high heat until a small amount of flour sizzles immediately when you drop some in.
3
mix the corn meal,flour,cajun seasoning and salt in a large bowel. working with a few at a time dredge the shrimp in the eggs then in the cornmeal-flour mixture. shake off any excess and fry until golden on both sides, about 2 minutes total. set fried shrimp on paper towels to drain.
4
to assemble sandwich, slice the bread rolls almost all the way through and smear the remoulade on both top and bottom. lay down a layer of shredded lettuce on the bottom of the bread, then arrange the shrimp ontop. lay 3-4 slices of tomato on the shrimp and press the top of the bread down on the bottom, compressing the sandwich a little. serve right away with hot sause and maybe a beer.
