Creole-Spiced Shrimp Po'Boys Recipe

My father is Cajun, and I grew up eating Cajun food. This easy recipe makes me think of happy childhood memories. Sometimes I use oysters or crawfish in addition to—or instead of—the shrimp. —Stacey Johnson, Bonney Lake, Washington

"Delicious shrimp! I am going to double dip in the flour/cornmeal next time with some beaten egg in between to make the breading a bit crispier."
