Fried Shrimp Po’boy With Creole Remoulade Recipe
Fried Shrimp Po’boy With Creole Remoulade is an iconic New Orleans sandwich, filled with crispy fried shrimp served on buttered French bread. Yum!
When I go back home to New Orleans the first 2 things I get are a drive-through daiquiri and a fried shrimp Po’boy. I know I’m home and in heaven.
Ask anyone from New Orleans where to get the best Po’boy and you are sure to get a passionate response – because everyone has a favorite – mine is Acme Oyster House in the Quarter.

Vampiro Tequila Cocktail with Jalisco Sangrita. This spicy tequila cocktail mixed with a traditional Jalisco Sangrita. Sangrita’s are my new cocktail obsession. Sangrita or “little blood” has traditionally been served as a chaser for excellent quality tequila. It would have been a mixture of fruit juices and finely ground chili pepper. Many sangrita recipes call for tomato juice, but that would not have been part of the traditional recipe, the original recipe would have been made from leftover juice from fresh fruit salads and changed based on the fruits used.
Today’s cocktail culture is creating very intriguing sangritas as an ingredient in some pretty amazing tequila cocktails. This recipe calls for a combination of grapefruit, orange, and lime with a touch of spicy jalapeno pepper.
