Grilled Shrimp Po' Boy Recipe


  • 2 lb gulf shrimp, peeled, deveined
  • Sweetwater Spice Tres Chiles
  • iceberg lettuce, shredded
  • heirloom tomato, sliced thin
  • Holmes Made Sweet Spicy Garlic Dill pickles
  • French bread

Cajun Seasoning:


  • 1 cup mayo
  • 3 tbsp stone ground mustard
  • 2 tbsp Big Rick's Chipotle Ketchup
  • 1 tbsp green onion, minced
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp pickle juice
  • 1 tsp garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne


Place the shrimp in a brining/marinating container with the Sweetwater Spice Tres Chiles. Place in the refrigeration for 30-45 minutes.

Combine the ingredients for the rémoulade in a bowl and mix well to incorporate. Store in the refrigerator.

Combine the Cajun seasoning ingredients and mix well.

Preheat the Yoder Smokers YS640 pellet grill to 450°F, set up with GrillGrates, for direct grilling.

Remove the shrimp from the brine/marinade. Thread the shrimp onto flat skewers. Season with the Cajun seasoning on all sides.

Grill the shrimp until slightly charred. Flip the skewers and continue grilling until the shrimp are opaque, and the internal temperature reaches 140°F. Toast your French bread on the grill.

Build the sandwich. Start by spreading the bottom half of the bread with the rémoulade. Top with tomato slices, then iceberg lettuce. Layer on some pickles. Top with the grilled shrimp and the top half of the French bread.
