Shrimp Po Boys

Shrimp Po'Boy (or Shrimp Poor Boys as I grew up calling them) are a wonderful diversion from your normal bunned sandwich. These shrimp are breaded in a flakey and flavorful batter, pan fried, and surrounded by crisp fresh veggies. You will be so happy to have this sandwich in your mouth. I promise. 

3 gourmet buns
12 shrimp, thawed and deveined 
1 cucumber, sliced
6 ounces cherry tomatoes, quartered
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
1 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup flour
2 1/2 tsp lavender salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons dijon mustard
1 tablespoon relish
2 dashes hot sauce

Mix your salt, peppers, garlic, thyme, & oregano together in a small bowl. Heat 1 cup vegetable oil in a frying pan on medium high heat. Dip your shrimp in the buttermilk, then the flour, then your spice mixture. Then fry your shrimp until each side is golden, about 2 minutes per side. Mix together your mayo, mustard, relish, and hot sauce. Spread your mayo on each side of your buns, place your shrimp, cucumbers, and tomatoes in your buns. Serve immediately. 

This is a great, easy, fun and fresh idea for your next meal. Enjoy!
