Buffalo Shrimp Po Boys – A fun twist on the classic Po’ Boy using crispy fried buffalo shrimp (short cut from the store)! Add some ranch dressing or blue cheese to cool it down, or drizzle on even more buffalo sauce!
Last month I shared my Copycat Red Lobster Tartar Sauce recipe with you as part of a partnership with Gorton’s Seafood. Today I am back with another great recipe. These Buffalo Shrimp Po Boys! How fun are they?
Po’ Boys are a classic sandwich from Louisiana. They are served on delicious hearty bread, usually with fried shrimp, lettuce, tomato and often times a remoulade or other Cajun sauce. I have never experienced one in the south before, but when I was growing up there was a place in Wisconsin that was run by a family from Louisiana, and the ones they made were amazing!
I am pretty much a fan of anything with buffalo sauce, and I am slowing converting my son to be the same way. So when I saw that Gorton’s new Go Saucy line had a Buffalo Shrimp, I was all over it. Crispy fried shrimp coated in a spicy buffalo sauce might be even better than chicken! Next time I think I might try these shrimp in my Shrimp and Avocado Tostadas – the spicy with the creamy avocado. Yum!
Gorton’s has been around since 1849 with a mission of helping people enjoy the goodness of seafood. I grew up in the Mid-West and now live in Colorado, so I have never had access to fresh seafood, anything but lake fish, or shrimp. So Gorton’s is something we always have in the freezer, because my family loves seafood.
I left the cajun sauce off these Buffalo Shrimp Po Boys, but added ranch for my family. Blue cheese would be great too, but my family is more into ranch. After the shrimp cooks, I tossed it in the buffalo sauce and added it to the sandwich. Then I took a little bit of the sauce left in the bowl and drizzled it over the top.
These po’ boys were crunchy, spicy, fresh, and delicious. If you have never tried one, it is time to change that! Pick up a package of the Go Saucy! Buffalo Shrimp next time you are at the store, and you can have these for dinner in just minutes!
