Shrimp Po&rsquo Boy

If you've never had Louisiana's iconic po' boy, this fried shrimp version is a great place to start. Dressed with crunchy shredded iceburg, juicy tomatoes, and a creamy and briny remoulade-esque sauce, this imposing sandwich will take you to the fern and Spanish moss-lined streets of NOLA in seconds flat.

Outside of Louisiana and states surrounding it, po' boy bread can be hard to come by. Its light and airy texture and thin, crispy crust is a po' boy trademark, but can be substituted with a French hero or roll, or even ciabatta.

The remoulade? Totally optional. If you'd like, replace it with a slather of mayo and some pickle chips to maintain some creaminess and briny crunch.

Peanut oil will get your shrimp SUPER crispy, but it's a little more pricey than veggie oil. Either will work for this recipe!

Louisiana-made Crystal Hot Sauce is a natural pairing for this sandwich &mdash keep a bottle on the table for spice-lovers to add their own.

Recipe Summary

  • 1 pound medium unpeeled raw shrimp
  • 1 celery stalk, sliced (1⁄4 cup)
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped pickled jalapeño slices, plus 1 tsp. pickled jalapeño liquid from jar (from 1 [16-oz.] jar)
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice (from 1 lemon)
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh chives, divided
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 12 oblong mini brioche rolls, top-sliced (from a bakery)
  • 1 tablespoon celery leaves

Bring a medium pot of water to a boil over high. Add shrimp remove from heat. Cover let stand until shrimp are cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Drain let stand at room temperature until cooled, 10 minutes. Peel and roughly chop.

Stir together next 6 ingredients and 1 teaspoon of the chives in a medium bowl. Add shrimp toss to combine.

Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium. Place 6 rolls in skillet, top sides down, gently pulling rolls open so insides of rolls toast, about 1 minute. Remove rolls from skillet set aside. Repeat with remaining 1 tablespoon butter and 6 rolls.

Fill each roll with 2 tablespoons shrimp mixture. Sprinkle with remaining 1 teaspoon chives and celery leaves serve immediately.

If you’re using raw shrimp, begin by bringing a pot of water to a boil.

Add the shrimp and cook until bright pink and cooked through, about 2 minutes (the water needn’t return to a boil). Drain the shrimp in a colander and run under cold water to shock the shrimp and stop the cooking. Peel the shrimp and devein if necessary.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, Old Bay, wine vinegar and Worcestershire sauce.

Stir in the cooked shrimp, celery and white and light green scallions.

Toss well, then taste and adjust seasoning.

Chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Before serving, sprinkle the salad with the dark green scallions and a dash of Old Bay. The salad will keep for two days, covered, in the refrigerator.

How to Make Shrimp Noodle Rolls

Noodle rolls are formed from a long rice noodle sheet that is then wrapped around a filling of barbecued pork, beef, shrimp, scallions or a Chinese donut and served with soy sauce. A dim sum favorite, noodle rolls are also served as part of a simple breakfast alongside a cup of hot tea.

At a restaurant, the rice noodle mixture and filling are combined on a steam-permeable cloth and cooked in large commercial steamers. The noodles are then finished with the addition of a warm, sweetened soy sauce as they are unveiled at your table.

At home, it’s best to work from packaged rice noodle rolls, as the delicate wrappers are difficult to make properly without the restaurant apparatus. Your rolls will vary in smoothness with the quality of the noodle you select, but a well-made filling will still result in a savory, aromatic final product.

I now live in rural Northern New York, after living in San Francisco for 20 years. Now that I’m no where near Asian markets anymore, is there an online market to buy rice noodle rolls? I can find eggroll wrappers, etc here. Thanks!

Dim Sum Central

Hi Saundra, I’m afraid I don’t have an easy solution for you. The rice noodles need to be fresh and moist, so they don’t really tolerate storage and shipping well. Perhaps you could try this rice roll paper, commonly used in Thai spring rolls, as a reasonable approximation:


I’m not sure why this site has suggested using premade noodles. It’s really easy to make these but you will need some special tools. I have a deep hotel pan that I place over two burners. I fill the pan about 1/4th full with hot water. I then put in a perforated hotel pan insert. This is basically a rectangular pan that fits inside the hotel pan but it’s perforated with holes. The perforated insert pan sits above the water and once the water is boiling you add a lid and you now have a large steamer.

I then put a greased 13″ x 9″ x 2″ pan inside the perforated pan. The smaller pan will hold the rice noodle.

The rice noodle is easily made. I like using a mixture of 1 part tapioca starch to 4 parts glutinous rice flour. I add some salt and enough water to make a slightly thin batter. If your batter resembles a pancake batter, it’s too thick. It needs to be more loose like a crepe batter.

I pour just enough batter into the greased pan to cover the bottom. To help spread the batter out, I tilt the pan up and down and left and right so that the bottom of the pan is covered with a really thin coat of batter.

After bringing the water in the hotel pan to a rolling boil over high heat (both burners), I cover the hotel pan with a lid and steam the rice noodle pan for about 2 minutes. I then spoon just a bit of extra batter along one end of the noodle and then add 2 rows of shrimp. The batter will cook and hold the shrimp in place. NOTE: I did not do this at the outset because I didn’t want the shrimp falling through the batter.

I top the shrimp with fresh minced ginger and chopped onions. I steam this for another 2-3 minutes. I then add some chopped kale and Chinese cabbage or bok choy. I drizzle a small amount of oyster sauce over the vegetables and shrimp. Since oyster sauce tends to be as thick as ketchup, I actually dilute it with just a bit of water to make it more easy to pour. I then steam the mixture for another 1-2 minutes.

After removing the noodle pan from the steamer, I use a knife to cut it in half. I cut it right up the center from the bottom to the top. This will make it much easier to roll up. I use an offset spatula to loosen one side and then with a flip of the wrist, I start rolling it up.

The first roll usually scatters some vegetables, so I simply push them back in place and continue rolling until I reach the end of the pan. The cheong-fan is then transferred to a plate or a serving platter and I repeat the same rolling process with the other side. After garnishing the plate with chopped green onions, I have two servings of cheong-fan.

I would not recommend trying to make this using spring roll wrappers. Spring rolls are much too small and the texture is all wrong. Spring rolls also don’t have a high enough gluten content, so they’re much more likely to tear. This is why I use tapioca starch. The tapioca adds extra gluten and gives the noodle some added texture.

Wes – I hope I wasn’t intrusive by adding this comment. I’m the chef instructor of a Culinary Arts program and thought I’d add my two cents worth to what I think is a really great website.
