Droolicious Cuisine at BirminghamMommy.com: Shrimp Po Boys

featured, to eat, to make — By on February 18, 2011 at 8:00 am

With Mardi Gras just around the corner we decided to give you something with a little cajun flare, just in case you can’t make it down to the bayou for the festivities!

“This is a healthier take on the traditional shrimp po’ boy, but I  promise you won’t miss that fried coating one bit! Packed with lots of flavor and the option to omit the hot sauce to make this a  family-friendly dish.  Yields 4 servings.”

Ingredients:
2 cups angel hair cabbage
2 tablespoons nonfat plain yogurt
2 tablespoons lowfat mayo
1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
1 pound raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon paprika
4 whole-wheat sub rolls
1 tomato sliced
1 red onion, thinly sliced
Texas Pete hot sauce

1)  In a large bowl mix together yogurt, mayo, and Old Bay.  Add cabbage and toss to coat.  Refrigerate.
2) Preheat skillet over medium-high heat.  Toss shrimp with oil, salt, pepper, chili powder, and paprika.  Add to skillet and cook until done about 3-4 minutes.
3) Toast rolls.  Divide shrimp among 4 sandwiches.  Top with slaw, red onion, and tomatoes.  Add some generous dashes of hot sauce.

    That sounds really, really good!! I’m definitely gonna make this one. Not sure the little one will try it. She’s, oh, so picky lately. But I’ll definitely be making them for mom.
