Cajun Po Boy Sandwich

Get ready for a flavor-packed adventure with this delectable Shrimp Po' Boy sandwich recipe. Succulent shrimp, creamy Cajun sauce, and crispy hoagie rolls come together in a mouthwatering roll - let's get started!

You Will Need

  • 2 lbs of peeled, deveined, uncooked large shrimp
  • 4 tbsp of butter
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • Kosmos Q Lab Cajun Seasoning to taste
  • Hoagie rolls
  • Shredded lettuce
  • Tomato, sliced

Ingredients for Creamy Cajun Sauce

  • 1 cup Duke's mayonnaise
  • 2/3 cup ketchup
  • 3 tablespoons horseradish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp Kosmos Q SPG rub

The Prep

Before we dive in, let's prepare all the ingredients and tools that will be used during the cook. Start by preheating your flat top grill - if you don't own one, a cast iron skillet over direct heat will do.

Next comes the Creamy Cajun Sauce. In a mixing bowl, combine Duke's mayonnaise, ketchup, horseradish sauce, and lemon juice. Season to taste with Kosmo's Q Lab Cajun Seasoning. Whisk everything together until smooth, then pop the sauce in the fridge to chill.

While the sauce chills, it's time to prepare the shrimp. Place it all in a large enough bowl, and generously cover with Kosmos Q Lab Cajun Seasoning, ensuring each shrimp is fully coated with the savory and spicy goodness.

The Cook

With the flat top grill ready for action, we can go ahead and melt the butter. Once done, add the seasoned shrimp and minced garlic to the hot surface. Watch the magic unfold as the shrimp sizzle and turn a vibrant pink color throughout. This process should take around 5 minutes, but keep a close eye on the shrimp to avoid overcooking.

While the shrimp are cooking, seize the opportunity to give your hoagie rolls  a quick toast. Butter the rolls, then place them on the flat top for that delightful crunch.

The Payoff

The moment has arrived - it's time to assemble our Shrimp Po' Boy masterpiece! Take the hoagie rolls, and spread a generous layer of the Creamy Cajun Sauce on each side. Top it with shredded lettuce and tomato slices (pro tip: season those tomato slices!). Finally, pile on a good amount of seasoned shrimp. 

Now, it's time to dig in and savor the goodness of this Shrimp Po' Boy. That creamy Cajun sauce is guaranteed to become your new favorite thing to go with any kind of fish or seafood.

We hope you enjoyed this one, catch you on the next one!

Effortlessly smoke tender, juicy pork butts overnight on your pellet grill. Perfect for no-fuss, delicious BBQ. Wake up to mouth-watering aromas and ready-to-shred pork.

The EASIEST Overnight Pork Butts On A Pellet Grill EVER!

On today’s video, I’m showing you how to make the easiest, overnight pork butt you’ve ever made in your life! For this pork butt, we’re firing up the Traeger with hickory pellets, but you use whatever cooker, and pellets, you want, just make sure it’s ready to run at 225°F overnight. This video is perfect for beginners that are looking for an easy pork butt recipe. First, I’ll show you how I do a light trim, then we’ll apply a mustard binder, rub it up, and set it on the smoker. And, if you don’t want to trim the fat off, you don’t even have to do that! Seriously, it doesn’t get much easier than this smoked pork butt recipe. Even though we aren’t injecting these pork butts, I’ll tell you what I would use if we decided to. And make sure you’re paying attention because I’m showing you exactly how to rack these pork butts for the perfect smoke. Plus, if you’re smoking in the cold, I’ll tell you how I maintain the perfect temperature in my smoker. Once you’ve got the pork butts perfectly placed, shut the lid and don’t touch them for at least 12 hours. When that time is up, I’ll show you how to check the temp, get the perfect wrap, and we’ll finish up the cooking process. Once the pork butts are complete, we’ll shred it, make some killer sandwiches, and what doesn’t get eaten, we’ll store for later. Enough talking, let’s get to cooking.
