This recipe is adapted from the book Emeril's New New Orleans Cooking and it's delicious and easy to make. Though there is nothing like serving it hot from the oven, it can also be made a ahead of time for easy entertaining.
This recipe is from Chef Anthony Scanio at Emeril's Delmonico in New Orleans, where this is a very traditional dish. You can eat these on their own with some piping hot white rice, but they also make a wonderful side dish for a holiday table.
In this po-boy, the shrimp are not fried, but instead quickly sautéed in a pan in less than 5 minutes. The lettuce is tossed with a simple vinaigrette made from vinegary hot sauce. Currently on the menu at Lagasse's Stadium in Las Vegas.
This version of remoulade is the one you'll find most often in New Orleans - it is ever so slightly pink from the hint of ketchup and has a little kick from the horseradish and cayenne. It's delicious with seafood and is a classic showstopper.
