PIN IT FOR LATER!

I have a lot of places on my list of must-visit locations. And one at the top of that list is New Orleans.

I want to see the architecture. Learn the history. Hear the music. But let’s be honest – the biggest reason I want to go is for the food.

Beignets at Cafe du Monde, dinner at Commander’s Palace, a muffuletta at Central Grocery – I’m sure I could spend weeks there, just eating through the city. And there would definitely be a lot of Po’Boy sandwiches in the mix.

I’ve actually never had a true Po’Boy before. This is reason enough to take that trip to New Orleans, right?

I know these are not your traditional po’boy sandwiches, but they are definitely a delicious twist. Let me first tell you of a mistake not to make. (Because maybe someone else made this mistake… ) Do not use traditional Creole seasoning, just because you have it in your cupboard and you don’t want to go buy reduced sodium. Because your shrimp will be extremely salty. Not that I know this from experience or anything. 😉 Get yourself some reduce sodium. Or cut way back on the amount in the recipe. I did love the heat that the seasoning brought, though, so I definitely think you’d be better off just using the reduced sodium from the start.

And can we talk about the slaw? This pineapple slaw is super easy to throw together, but it adds the perfect sweetness to counteract the salty from the shrimp.

I may not be taking a trip to New Orleans any time soon, but at least I have this Baked Shrimp Po’Boy Sandwich with Pineapple Slaw until then!
