This Easy Blackened Shrimp Po' Boy recipe is the perfect handheld addition of flavor to your day! Completely packed with bold, spicy cajun flavor, this recipe comes based with a tender buttery brioche roll and is then topped with colossal well-seasoned shrimp, sweet sandwich pickles, and grape tomatoes; all of which will leave you having more than a few bites! Completely easy, the perfect weeknight meal, family-friendly, and ready in under 30 short minutes.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
If not marinated overnight, begin by seasoning shrimp and setting it aside to sit for a few minutes until ready to use.
In a medium skillet over medium-high heat, add butter until fully warmed and melted. Add shrimp and cook on both sides (about 2-3 minutes), until pink and cook through. Remove from heat and add a bit more seasoning to the tops of shrimp along with bread crumbs.
Add shrimp (still in the skillet) to the oven for 5 minutes or so until color has become more golden and 'darkened' with the seasoning.
In the meantime, lightly toast the outsides + insides of your rolls. Once toasted, spread both side with your favorite condiment (butter, chipotle sauce, etc.), top with sweet pickles, sliced tomatoes, and followed by shrimp. Repeat until all Po' Boy's are made.
Drizzle with additional sauce, if desired. Enjoy!
STORAGE: Place any leftover shrimp in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
