po' boys.

As you may know, I'm just now emerging from a month-long period of rather intense work. Today is my first day back, and in order to reconnect with home life, we cook.

Or, I cook, cause the Mara is still sick (also going on nearly a month of off-and-on illness, not really a classic January for the Moop) .

Dus: shrimp po' boys tonight, cherie. Go Saints.


shrimp for po' boys.


16 or 20 shrimp or so
1 cup flour
2 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp garlic powder

3 eggs
1/2 cup Tabasco or Texas Pete

peanut or corn oil for frying

Combine first 4 non-shrimp ingredients in a bowl for dredging. Combine next 3 non-shrimp ingredients in a bowl for dipping. Heat oil to 190C or so. Dip the shrimp, then dredge, and fry, 3 or 4 at a time. Drain on paper afterwards and assemble po' boys pretty immediately, meaning: 3 or 4 shrimp plus shredded iceberg, thinly sliced tomato, and plenty of mayo, all on wide and crusty French bread. Serves 2 or 3.
