As promised, here is our second part to our first football post. In an effort to enjoy, celebrate and explore football food, we are making recipes that represent football teams. Basically, we will have a ton of fun eating and making delicious game day foods. To celebrate football season, we made these incredible shrimp o’boy sliders. Hands down, these were one of the most exciting appetizers we have ever made. Perfect for game day or a gathering, these sliders were so much fun to enjoy and share.
Given that there are not a lot of places in our area that serve traditional Louisiana food, we have never tried a po’boy before. Whenever I see a picture of a po’boy whether it is filled with shrimp or chicken, my mouth literally starts to water. Any sandwich that has a crispy inside and a delicious sauce oozing out, it is an amazing sandwich in my book. The moment Dan suggested a shrimp o’boy for a game day recipe, I was so eager to jump in the kitchen and figure out how to make it.
We love using seafood in our dishes, and especially in our appetizers. A bonus of using seafood is that it is incredibly good for you while also being so irresistibly delicious. Seafood is helpful for heart health and is full of great nutrients that reduce the risk of heart disease. It also reduces the risk of stroke and type 2 diabetes. Besides these awesome health benefits, we love using seafood because it is so versatile. From a flavorful main dish to a fun appetizer, we love seeing how we can incorporate seafood creatively into our diet. Some of our favorite seafood dishes we have made were our lobster risotto, our baked salmon with lemon sauce and our creamy scallop pancetta pasta. These meals are some of our all time favorites, and I know that these incredible shrimp po’boy sliders will join in on that tasty list.

These shrimp po’boy sliders were quite easy for having a breaded component. Usually when we make something that is deep fried or oven fried, we think that it will be a whole, intense production. However, now that we have been making more and more foods in our air fryer, frying things so much easier. Even if we choose to bake food instead of fry it, it has proven to be a simple task whenever we attempt to make food crispy. Before we air fried the shrimp, it was so effortless to dip it in buttermilk and then into a flour mixture. After practicing this easy technique with several recipes, we have realized that frying food is actually a quick and simple task.
We hope you try and love eating these delicious shrimp po’boyy sliders. They are the perfect way to enjoy a football game and cheer on your team.
In a mixing bowl, add the flour, corn meal, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper. In a separate bowl, add the buttermilk. Dip each shrimp first into the buttermilk and then into the flour mixture. Place the shrimp into an air fryer basket or on a greased baking sheet. Cook the shrimp in an air fryer for 10 minutes at 390 degrees or in the oven at 450 degrees for 10 minutes, turning after 5 minutes.
In a bowl, mix the mayonnaise, garlic, mustard, lemon juice, relish, worcestershire sauce, hot sauce and fresh parsley. Mix until smooth.
Top each roll with shrimp, remoulade sauce and a slice of tomato. Enjoy!
