Shrimp Po’ Boys with Spicy horseradish Sauce

February 28, 2013


Thanks goodness my husband buys shrimp by the boat load, haha no pun intended!  I think I have told you this before that we have a friend that is a seafood distributor and he has the best shrimp you have ever tasted.  Marc buys something like 30 pounds at a time and stores them in the freezer.  I took out a pound yesterday and rummaged through my kitchen and came up with these sandwiches, and they were great.  I ate mine without the bread, and I loved it.  Marc and I both agreed we could these once a week and be happy.  It was quick, which I know you all love.  It was easy, which I know you all applaud me for.  It was darn delicious, which your family will hug and kiss you for:)))  Give these a try.
