Crawfish Po Boys
The weather here has been insanely warm. I'm trying to take full advantage of it.
Had the urge for crawdads n shrimp the other day so I set up my fancy cooker and went to work.
I gave both the shrimp and crawdad tails an egg-milk wash with a bit of garlic powder and cayenne pepper added...
used my handy Bass Pro breader... (not sure if that's a word :))
dusted with one of my favorite seasoned flours... this isn't a good pic. The flour is Western Star and it's made in Kansas.
I added a bit of Swamp Dust crawfish seasoning to the flour for the shrimp. Gave it a nice kick!
Heating the oil on my fancy cooker...
Fried the crawdad tails first...
As usual, I ate more of them that I should have while cooking the rest....they are so tasty hot out of the cooker!
next the shrimp....
They were pretty tasty, I'll use that Swamp Dust again with these...
Next I build the sandwich while the goods were still hot.
Used a remoulade sauce, lettuce and tomatoes... I used a store bought sauce. It was Louisiana brand.
I was too full to make a shrimp po boy but was happy with the crawdad one. It was pretty tasty!
I was able to sit out on my back deck, the weather was so nice. Something about these sandwiches, reminds me of summer.
Can't believe March is here. Winter is flying by! I have fishing and garden fever. The wild onions are sprouting up around the farm and I saw my first robin today.
Hope everyone is having a great winter too. :)
