There are few things I enjoy more than a fast, simple and tasty recipe. Something you can put together in minutes, but doesn’t seem last minute. Well folks I have a quick recipe for you that is so easy even your teens can throw it together and it tastes great too! These easy shrimp po’ boy sandwiches were a big hit with my boys.
- Hoagie Buns
- Frozen Popcorn Shrimp
- Pepper Jack Cheese
Bake the popcorn shrimp according to package instructions. While baking cut your hoagie buns and spread mayo on both sides. Line bun with lettuce and tomato slices. When the shrimp comes out of the oven fill each sandwich generously and immediately cover with slices of pepper jack. The cheese should melt from the heat of the shrimp, but you can also pop the sandwich in the oven to help the melting process. Do not leave it in long or the lettuce and tomato will wilt. Enjoy!
I love the crunch of the shrimp with the little kick of heat the pepper jack adds.
The first time I ever had shrimp in a sandwich was in Rapid City, South Dakota. Weird right? That was back in my flight attendant days when we would overnight in random places and eat at off the wall places. But I remember, other than a quick trip over to Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse with a good pilot friend of mine, this was the highlight of our stay there. I would always order that sandwich.
