Chef's Tip

Toss any cooked shrimp (or scallops) that don’t fit in the sliders with any remaining romaine, tomatoes, and a little olive oil, salt, and pepper for a side salad (or snack on them while you’re putting together the po’ boys, like we did).

Ingredient IQ

New Orleans restaurateurs Benny and Clovis Martin claim to have coined the term po’ boy for their submarine sandwiches because they served them to farmers, dockworkers, streetcar conductors, and other “poor boys” at their restaurant near the French Market in the 1920s and 1930s. New Orleans natives pronounced them “po’ boys” and the name stuck.

Grill It

For an even leaner po’ boy, you can throw the shrimp on a grill. Prepare a medium-hot fire in a grill. Meanwhile, soak the wooden skewers in water for 10 minutes before threading them with the shrimp or scallops. Thread the shrimp or scallops onto skewers, making sure the shrimp are facing the same way or the flat sides of the scallops are facing out. Set the skewers on the grill directly over the heat and cook, turning once, until lightly charred and just opaque within, 2 to 5 minutes per side.

Wash produce before use


Prep and cook the shellfish

For the shrimp or jumbo shrimp:
  • Rinse the shrimp, then drain on a paper-towel-lined plate and pat dry; discard the tails on the jumbo shrimp. Season lightly with salt and as much po’ boy seasoning blend as you like.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the shrimp and cook, turning once, until firm and cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes per side for regular shrimp, 2 to 3 minutes per side for jumbo shrimp. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan.

For the scallops:
  • Pat the scallops dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and as much po’ boy seasoning blend as you like.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the scallops and cook without turning until golden brown on one side and starting to turn opaque, 2 to 4 minutes. Turn and continue cooking for about 30 seconds for translucent or 1 to 2 minutes for opaque. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan.

While the shellfish cooks, prepare the garnishes.


Prep the garnishes

  • Trim the root end from the romaine heart; thinly slice the leaves crosswise.
  • Cut the tomatoes in half.
In a medium bowl, stir together the tomatoes and ½ teaspoon [1 tsp] oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Toast the buns; assemble the sliders

In the same pan used for the shellfish, place the buns, cut sides down, and cook over medium-high heat until lightly toasted, 1 to 2 minutes. Alternatively, toast them in a toaster oven.
Place the bun bottoms, cut sides up, on a work surface and slather each with 1 tablespoon remoulade. Top each with the shellfish, romaine, and tomatoes. Close with the bun tops.


Transfer the sliders to individual plates and serve.
