Shrimp Po’ boys With Coleslaw

This is a longtime favorite in my house. It’s filling, refreshing, and great to have at any time.

The recipe is originally a Martha Stewart creation using catfish instead of shrimp, but I prefer shrimp. The coleslaw is also Miss Stewart’s, and it accents the fried shrimp perfectly.

My boyfriend and I can devour two sandwiches each, and that set us back about $12.

Ingredients for 2:

  • ½ pound shrimp, peeled
  • 4 sub sandwich breads
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup cornmeal
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • Oil for frying

Coleslaw:

  • ½ cabbage, finely shredded
  • ½ cup red onion, finely shredded
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey mustard
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • Salt and pepper

Spicy sauce:

  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup honey mustard
  • Cayenne

In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients for the coleslaw and toss. Refrigerate for at least an hour.

In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients for the spicy sauce, mix well, and refrigerate.

Prepare the oil for frying.

In a shallow plate or bowl, add the flour and season with salt and pepper. Dredge the shrimp in the flour mixture.

In a shallow plate or bowl, mix the egg and milk. Coat the shrimp in the egg-milk mixture.

Add cornmeal and more salt and pepper to the first flour mixture. Coat the shrimp in the cornmeal mixture.

Fry the shrimp in batches if necessary and drain on a paper towel.

Toast the bread if desired and spread the spicy sauce on both sides. Then top with shrimp and coleslaw. Serve immediately.
