Barbecue Shrimp Po'Boy
Funny thing about New Orleans' famed barbecue shrimp — it doesn't fit any definition of barbecue. There's no smoke, no open flame, and no tangy red sauce. Nope, barbecue shrimp is a dish that is usually sautéed or baked in butter and served with French bread for sopping. Here's my take — first I render lardons of bacon to use the fat with butter to add a smokiness to the sauté. Next I'm using that same loaf of French bread to turn it into another New Orleans standard — a po'boy. But I'm not done turning a Big Easy vittle on its head. To top my sandwich I took the old Cajun braised vegetable side dish Maque Choux and turned it into a relish. Finally, a garnish of bacon bits adds crunch and still more smoky goodness.
