Shrimp:

While waiting for the oil to heat, whisk eggs and milk together in a bowl making an egg wash.  In a medium-sized bowl, place Slap Ya Mama Cajun Fish Fry.  Now dip shrimp in egg wash, then coat evenly with fish fry batter.  Working in batches, fry shrimp until golden brown, about 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Transfer to a paper towel covered plate to drain.

Bread:

Slice French bread lengthways; spread melted butter on the inside of bread and place on a baking sheet with open ends up.  Bake for approximately 10 minutes.

Building a Po-Boy:

Generously spread remoulade sauce on the inside of bread.  Layer with shrimp, lettuce, tomatoes and pickles.  Douse with Slap Ya Mama Pepper Sauce, serve and enjoy!

If you like it a little spicier, try seasoning the shrimp with our Slap Ya Mama Hot Blend Seasoning before dipping them into the egg wash. Deliciousness with a kick!

Slap Ya Mama Boiled Shrimp

Slap Ya Mama Boiled Shrimp

Ingredients:

Directions:

In a large pot, fill half way with water, add Slap Ya Mama Seafood Boil, add halved lemon, place on high heat and bring to a rolling boil.  Once boiling, add shrimp and cover.  Bring to a rolling boil again, uncover and boil for 3 to 4 minutes. (If your burner brings to a boil slower than others then boil shrimp for a shorter period.  If it’s quick to bring to a boil, boil shrimp for a longer period.)  Remove shrimp from pot; place into a large bowl or on a serving tray, squeeze juice of sectioned lemon over shrimp and sprinkle evenly with Slap Ya Mama Seafood Boil.   Serve with your favorite cocktail sauce or butter sauce and enjoy.

Boiling Veggies:

Note:  You may also boil vegetables, such as corn, potatoes, sweet onions, whole garlic and mushrooms.  We often boil veggies first, then place in a large bowl and cover with foil.  Then boil shrimp in the same water, adding a few more tablespoons of Slap Ya Mama Seafood Boil to the water before adding shrimp.

Note: We use approximately 3 Tbsp (1.5 ounces) of Slap Ya Mama Seafood Boil for every pound of shrimp, crawfish, crab or vegetable.
