Grilled Shrimp Po’ Boy

Ingredients – Sandwich Fixings

  • Whole wheat hoagie rolls
  • Spinach
  • Tomato slices
  • Avocado wedges
  • Red onion slices
  • 12-inch bamboo skewers (soaked in water)

Ingredients – Grilled Shrimp

  • 2 Tbsp Oil
  • 2 Tbsp Blackened seasoning
  • 2 cloves Minced garlic
  • 4 sprigs, minced fresh oregano
  • Remoulade
  • ½ cup Greek yogurt, plain
  • ¼ cup Light mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsp Pickle relish
  • 1 clove Minced garlic
  • 1 Tbsp (more if desired) Sriracha sauce
  • 2 Tbsp Ketchup
  • 1 Tbsp Honey
  • Juice from one lime
  • As needed: paprika, salt and pepper


First, combine the oil, blackened seasoning, garlic and chopped oregano. Skewer enough shrimp for each sandwich onto each bamboo skewer and coat with marinade, let rest. Next, mix together all ingredients of the remoulade and set aside. Place shrimp skewers on a hot grill and cook fully. While shrimp are cooking, place cut wheat rolls open side down onto grill to toast. Once shrimp is finished cooking, pull them off the skewer into a bowl and coat well with remoulade sauce.

To assemble each sandwich, place spinach, tomato slices, avocado slices and red onion slices on open roll, then add shrimp to top it off and enjoy!

  • Whole wheat rolls and adding veggies provides dietary fiber
  • Grilling the shrimp instead of frying reduces the fat and calories
  • This lower fat remoulade utilizes reduced-fat mayo and low-fat Greek yogurt
  • Removing the inside of the roll before toasting reduces carbs and calories
