Shrimp Po’Boys with Pineapple Slaw

This twist on the traditional po'boy sandwich adds flavor and veggies while reducing fat and calories. For a smoked flavor, grill the shrimp. For a lower-carb option, serve the po'boy open-faced on a baguette half. —Melissa Pelkey Hass, Waleska, Georgia

    Made this just as is except for using real eggs and regular mayo as well because that's what I had. However, obviously my seasoning was not low sodium because with the 2 Tbls as per the recipe the salt was overwhelming. My fault! My husband said he would like to try again with a low/no salt version. We salvaged just by peeling off most of the crumb coating. The premise is good tho and the slaw was yummy!

    My husband made this for Mother's Day. At first my 14 year old son was complaining that it had coleslaw and tomatoes on it, but we made him try it anyway. He ended up eating 2 sandwiches that night and requested that we make it again. Simple, yet delicious. Slaw is excellent by itself, too!
