How to Make Shrimp Po-Boy

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oil to 365 degrees f. Combine ice water and evaporated milk. Pour this into the flour, until you get the consistency of pancake batter. Season with salt.
  2. Combine cornmeal and flour. Season with salt.
  3. In a squirt bottle, combine ketchup and hot sauce, to taste.
  4. Place shrimp in a large bowl. Pour some of the wet batter, enough for the shrimp to be swimming in it. Dump some of the dry batter in, just enough to coat and get rid of any moisture.
  5. Place shrimp in oil and cook until golden brown and cooked through. Place the shrimp on a baking sheet. Season with salt.
  6. Split your loafs open. Place shrimp on one side. On the other side, spread a thin layer of mayonnaise. Pile on some lettuce. Place pickle slices, and drizzle some of the hot sauce ketchup. Close sandwich together and eat!
