Cajun Inspired Shrimp Po’ Boys in Under 30 Minutes

Jump to recipe

Cajun Food, is one of my favorites because it is so flavorful. In fact, we love it so much that we have tried our hand at a few Cajun recipes like Crawfish Étouffée and this Shrimp Po’ Boys recipe, just to name a few. I like cooking with shrimp because it makes a quick meal, similar to chicken. It doesn’t take too long to thaw out or cook.

These Shrimp Po’ Boys are a no brainer when I’m in a rush. I mean, you only need a handful of ingredients; shrimp, bread, lettuce and tomatoes. Plus, whatever seasoning you’d like, in this case the Cajun seasoning is what I used and suggest.

The first thing you need to do is cook the shrimp, this should take less than 20 minutes. Just add it to a pan with the Cajun seasoning. You can also add a bit of parsley – I love adding herbs to my food but this is completely optional.

While the shrimp cooks, you can cut lettuce and tomatoes to add to the Po’ Boys. You can also toast the bread or serve as is. I like our bread toasted, so I buttered and placed them in the over for a few minutes.

Once the shrimp is cooked all you have to do is add the desired amount to the bread with some lettuce and tomatoes. You can add some mayo, but what we use is a chipotle mayo because it adds a good flavor to all our “sandwiches.” That’s it!

Have you ever made Shrimp Po’ Boys at home? If not, you probably should, it’s a super easy and quick meal. 😉

Buen Provecho,

  1. Being a true Nawlins’ gal, I love anything cajun! My husband, especially, loves cajun food as well! Can you believe that his mouth doesn’t get “hot” when he eats spicy food? Woo! Crazy, lol. I’d dig right into a Cajun Shrimp Po’Boy, right about now, but excuse me while I pick off those tomatoes, LOL. I can’t do tomatoes!

  2. This looks so good! I recently had one of these on a trip to Cape Cod, but have never dared to make one myself. I need to try it out.. I know my tastebuds will thank me haha!! 🙂
